The outage happened at about 4:45 p.m. and was caused by underground equipment failure in the area of Bayshore Boulevard and Geneva Avenue, said PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi. He said smoke was seen coming from a manhole in the area but that there was no underground fire.

The outage affected 6,811 customers at its peak and 6,350 customers remained without power as of about 6 p.m. Power was completely restored at 6:52 p.m., Guidi said.
