BERKELEY, Calif. - PG&E is working to restore power to customers in Berkeley after a huge tree fell near Cal's Memorial Stadium.

The tree took out power lines and power poles on Bancroft Way and Prospect Street just before 8 p.m. Sunday.

Crews are now using chainsaws to slowly take the tree apart.

Nearly 2,000 PG&E customers lost power. They've turned the lights back on for most of those people. But PG&E says the remaining 35 customers won't have their power restored until after 8 p.m. Monday.

With another storm headed our way, there's concern more trees could be falling this week.
