A power outage lasted six hours for around 400 customers in the area of Los Robles to La Donna avenues and El Camino Real to Encina Grande Drive in Palo Alto.
A transformer blew Saturday morning, initially causing around 2,600 customers to lose power around Wilkie Way, Middlefield Road, El Carmelo Avenue and San Antonio Road. The storm caused wires between poles to sag, according to Palo Alto Utilities Utilities Communications Manager Catherine Elvert.
Crews were en route by 10:32 a.m. Most homes affected had their power restored by 1 p.m., and all customers had their power stored by 4:15 p.m.
In the midst of recent rain, however, the agency reminds residents to stay away from any downed power lines and report it by calling 911 or Utilities' dispatch center at 650-496-6914.
