SDG&E Crews Making Progress On Restoring Power; 9,500 Still Without Electricity

Taking advantage of a break in the weather, crews from San Diego Gas & Electric on Friday made headway in restoring power to customers who had been shut off in the wake of deadly wildfire conditions. As of 5 p.m., the utility reported 9,470 customers were back online after SDG&E crews patrolled power lines serving portions of East Ramona, Pala Mesa, Viejas and Sunrise Highway. Earlier in the day, crews brought back power to portions of Alpine, Bonsall and Rainbow.
