A power outage affected customers in Cole Valley, the Upper Haight, Twin Peaks, the Castro, Noe Valley, and parts of the Mission this morning. No word yet on the cause of the interruption, but a Pacific Gas & Electric status page indicates service will be restored by 1:45pm.

Customers in Cole Valley reported the interruption around 10:40am on social media, leaving many businesses on Cole and Stanyan streets in the dark.

By 11:30am, power was restored to users in the Haight, Duboce Park and Cole Valley, but customers in Corona Heights, the Castro, Noe Valley and the Mission were still without electricity.

No Muni delays are reported, though Metro service at Church Station was temporarily suspended; similarly, traffic lights in the affected area are still operating.

We'll update this story as more information is available.

[Update: 12:06pm] Power has been restored to the Mission and most of the Castro, but approximately 615 customers in the Kite Hill area are still without service.
