PG&E released new details about a power outage that turned off the lights for more than 27,000 people across the Central Coast Saturday.

Company officials said someone not affiliated with PG&E cut a tree, which fell on several transmission lines.

The damage shut off power for people living from Grover Beach to Orcutt. PG&E restored power at approximately 9 p.m.

Crews will continue to make repairs to the transmission lines but don’t expect work to impact customers.

A PG&E spokesperson said the company treats the safety of its customers and community as its top priority.
