More than 2,800 customers have lost power in an outage in San Luis Obispo Tuesday morning, according to PG&E.
The outage started shortly before 6 a.m. The outage was caused by a tree that hit power lines on Loomis Street, San Luis Obispo Police Chief Deanna Cantrell stated in a tweet.
Homes along Grand Avenue from Monterey Street to Cal Poly lost power, Cantrell said. The police chief is warning drivers to be careful at intersections, as they become a four-way stop when the lights go out.
Fire officials are working on the tree, and power is expected to be restored later Tuesday morning.
