Outage leaves Palo Alto residents without power


UPDATE: As of 2:30 p.m. Wednesday all power was restored.


Palo Alto's Utilities Department is in the process of restoring power to hundreds of residents in the Duveneck/St. Francis neighborhood after an outage that occurred 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, officials said.

About 200 customers are without power in Palo Alto from Channing Avenue and Edgewood Drive and Rhodes Drive to Greer Road, officials said.

Almost 12 hours to change a fuse.

.... Wonder how many Palo Alto engineers it takes to change a fuse?
