A power outage affected more than 2,000 customers in the southern half of Palo Alto near the Ventura neighborhood Wednesday morning, according to the City of Palo Alto Outage Map.
Residents in the Southgate and Old Palo Alto areas, however, also reported on Twitter that their power was out or reduced and the phone line to report the outage was so busy they couldn't get through.
The outage started at 10:20 a.m., according to the utilities officials. The cause of the outage was a blown fuse. Power was restored at about 11:07 a.m.
