Peninsula residents not as affected as rest of Bay Area.

By Bay City News Service

Thousands of Bay Area residents were without power Sunday as rain and wind pounded the region, a utility spokeswoman said.

The majority of outages were reported in the North Bay, where 5,300 customers were without power in Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties as of 1:30 p.m., PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said.

In the East Bay, around 1,375 customers were experiencing outages, Morris said.

In San Francisco, 88 customers were in the dark, and just 28 Peninsula customers were without service.

In the South Bay, 50 customers were without power, Morris said. Crews were assessing each outage individually, and estimated restoration times were varied, Morris said.

Anyone who encounters downed power lines should call 911 immediately.
