About 4,500 electricity customers were without power for about four hours Thursday due to an outage concentrated in south Palo Alto that started late in the morning, Utilities spokeswoman Catherine Elvert said.
The outage that began around 11:25 a.m. spanned multiple neighborhoods, she said.
Crews have been called to make repairs and have fixed some underground equipment as of about 12:30 p.m, according to Elvert. They also checked overhead lines for any issues.
Power was initially estimated to return around 2 p.m. The department issued a tweet at 3:31 p.m. stating electricity was returned to all the impacted customers.
The cause of the outage is under investigation, though it could be related to the day's storm and high winds, Elvert said.
