(KGTV) -- San Diego Gas and Electric has shut off power to more than 1,400 customers due to dry, windy conditions.

According to the company, a total of 1,466 residents were affected in the East County communities of Boulevard, Campo, and Jacumba.

SDG&E says winds have since subsided and crews have started inspections on equipment in an effort to restore power.

“We currently expect that power will be restored today as long it is safe to do so,” the company said.

SDG&E says a community resource center will be opened by 5 p.m. should power remain off.

The center is located at 39919 Ribbonwood Road in Boulevard.
