Hundreds of residents in Mountain View's Rex Manor neighborhood lost power twice in one day due to the rainstorm that's wreaking havoc across the Bay Area, according to outages reported by PG&E.
The neighborhood's first outage on Wednesday, Jan. 4, began around 8:21 a.m. and afflicted nearly 750 customers. PG&E's preliminary determination was that the outage was caused by "an equipment issue," according to the utility company's outage map webpage, and residents got their power back by early afternoon.
Then again, just before 6 p.m., PG&E's outage map showed the same neighborhood without power, this time impacting more than 1,000 customers.
By the early afternoon on Jan. 5, the outage had reduced in size to 743 impacted customers and by 7:30 p.m., the outage was no longer reported on PG&E's map. PG&E said the second outage was caused by the weather.
A third, smaller outage in the Rex Manor neighborhood on streets closest to West Middlefield Road was reported starting at 7:22 p.m. on Jan. 5. It's impacting 84 customers and had no estimated time of restoration as of 8 p.m.
Another outage Wednesday afternoon in the Old Mountain View and Shoreline West neighborhoods affected more than 1,800 customers, according to the PG&E outage map webpage. As of 8 p.m. on Jan. 4, the outage appeared to have been resolved, according to the map.
The outage map showed smaller pockets of power outages persisting in the downtown area throughout the day on Jan. 5, with hundreds of customers affected during the afternoon. As of 7:30 p.m., 109 customers were still without power near Vincent Drive and Anza Street, with no estimate for restoration yet. These customers have been without power for nearly 22 hours, according to the outage map.
PG&E warned customers that high winds and storm conditions forecast for Jan. 4 and 5 may cause outages.
