A downed power line was blamed for causing a power outage in Mountain View that affected nearly 1,500 customers Sunday morning, a utility spokesman said.

The power line came down on Miramonte Avenue at around 6 a.m., PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

By 11: 30 a.m., power had been restored to all but around 133 customers, Guidi said.

The remaining customers were expected to get their power back between noon and 1 p.m., he said.
