More than 1,400 utilities customers in Palo Alto's Barron Park neighborhood lost electric power Friday afternoon -- including Gunn High School.
The power outage occurred at 3:13 p.m. in the area of Gunn High School. Power was restored by 6:30 p.m.
Assistant Director Dean Batchelor of the Utilities Department said the outage may have been caused by a damaged transformer, though utility crews were still investigating the exact cause.
Streets that lost power included Maybell Avenue, Los Robles, El Camino Real, Amaranta Avenue, Matadero Avenue, Barron Avenue, La Donna Avenue and Laguna Avenue. Gunn High School also lost power late Friday afternoon as school was ending.
The outage affected 1,756 customers, utility officials said.
