Nearly 5,000 PG&E customers in Mountain View lost power Wednesday afternoon, the utility company reported. According to the utility company's outage center, power was restored later in the evening.
The outage impacted the entire Monta Loma neighborhood, and spilling into the Rex Manor neighborhood. Additional homes were without power along Central Expressway into Jackson Park and Old Mountain View. The entire outage impacted 4,996 customers as of 5 p.m. on March 22.
"Storms have caused widespread outages," PG&E wrote. "Crews may be reassigned to prioritize emergency calls from local police and fire departments."
The preliminary determination is that the outage was caused by the weather.
Large swaths of Mountain View have lost power multiple times in recent weeks due to frequent stormy weather, with rain and heavy wind causing utility issues all over the Bay Area. Earlier in the week patches of neighborhoods ranging from San Antonio to Sylvan park were without power, affecting roughly 3,000 customers.
