Updated: Hundreds of Los Gatos Residents Without Power

As many as 26,000 customers experience power outages in Santa Cruz Mountains due to wind storm.

Update: 4:30 p.m., Dec. 1: Power has been restored to most of the 450 Los Gatos PG&E customers who lost service Wednesday evening due to the strong wind storm.

As of this afternoon, 133 customers, however, were still without electricity, said Monica Tell, a spokeswoman for PG&E.

About 1,800 Bay Area residents are still without power. They were among thousands who lost service overnight, Tell said.

In the Santa Cruz Mountains, as many as 25,000 customers were without power, she said.

In Los Gatos, the 133 customers still without power reside along Old Santa Cruz Highway, Shady Lane, Skyline Boulevard and Short Road, she added.

Customers can either report an outage or get automated outage information by calling 1-800-743-5002.

There's also an interactive outage map on the PG&E website to help the public locate their service interruptions, Romans said.

As of this afternoon, 170 North Bay residents are without power, along with 360 East Bay customers.

In the Peninsula 370 have their power knocked down.

The South Bay has about 1,000 customers still affected.

In San Francisco no outages have been reported.

Windy conditions appear to have knocked out power to many Bay Area customers.

To report downed street trees, contact the Los Gatos Parks and Public Works Department at 408-399-5770.

For private downed trees, contact the same number only if they're blocking a public street. If trees fall on private property, homeowner or resident must contact a tree removal service company.

If you encounter a downed power line, you should assume it is live, keep a safe distance away, and call 911 and PG&E.

For those living in the Los Gatos mountains, you can check road closures by going to the Santa Cruz County Public Works Department.
