Power restored at UC Berkeley after outage

Power has been fully restored at 34 buildings on the UC Berkeley campus Friday after contractors cut a power line.

University spokesperson Robert Sanders said the first report of the outage was between 11:30 a.m. and noon.

Some of the buildings affected were the Alumni House, the Energy Biosciences Building, Haas Pavilion, Moffitt Library, Sather Tower and Sproul Hall.

A contractor doing routine work at a power substation cut a power line, which caused the outage.

Campus utility workers worked to restore power by switching to another substation.
