SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Power was restored Saturday afternoon for more than 2,000 utilities customers in Mid City who were without electricity for more than five hours.

2,216 customers in University Heights, North Park, Normal Heights, Kensington, Talmadge and the College Area lost power just after 10 a.m., according to San Diego Gas and Electric's online outage map.

The blackout resulted from a problem with underground electrical equipment that crews were working to repair, according to SDGE spokesman Joe Britton.

All customers had their power back on by about 3:50 p.m., Britton said.
