The article doesn't say what areas were affected. Does anybody know what areas were affected? I didn't feel any power glitch, but then I was asleep at that time....

The St. Frances Acres neighborhood was affected. No power for about 45 minutes.

The gal i talked to at PG&E this morning was a riot, she informed me we don't get charged for electrical usage during power outages, well no duh! Thanks PG&E, great knowledge, fix it & I hate failures at a corporate & monopolostic level. PG&E

I live on Calderon and I heard a large noise at 5:30 and when I got up no power. Not fun to take a shower and get dressed in the dark

I was in the cuesta park neighborhood and definitely noticed a "hiccup" in the power and short flicker of the lights, but it was over in a split second and no problem s after that.
