SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — As the latest in a series of storms to hit the Bay Area continued to move south Sunday morning, PG&E worked to restore electricity to more than 20,000 customers who lost power.

A broken power pole that left around 8,500 San Francisco residents in the dark Sunday morning has been repaired, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.

PG&E crews were working to restore service to 5,060 customers in the North Bay, Molica said.

Around 4,730 Peninsula residents were without power, and 1,310 customers were impacted in the South Bay, according to PG&E.

Since Thursday, PG&E estimated that 276,780 customers around the Bay Area lost power at some point, Molica said.

About 93 percent of those outages have been resolved.
