SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A power outage Monday morning left thousands of San Diegans in parts of North County without service, San Diego Gas & Electric reported.

Just before 8:50 a.m., SDG&E stated an unplanned outage affected at least 18,000 customers in areas such as Del Mar, Sorrento Valley, University City, Solana Beach, Rancho Penasquitos, and Rancho Bernardo.

A spokesperson for the utility told ABC 10News an issue at a substation in Del Mar may have been led to the outage and crews were trying to assess the problem.

By 12 p.m., SDG&E said just over 6,600 customers were without power. The utility was hoping to have power restored for all affected by 12:30 p.m.
