PG&E map detailing a power outage in Menlo Park on 6/21/24

UPDATE 6:00 p.m.: Power has been restored to all customers who lost power earlier today.

UPDATE 4:29 p.m.: Power has been restored to much of the city, aside from about 65 customers near Willow Road and Newbridge Street, and another 43 on Ringwood Avenue.

ORIGINAL REPORT: PG&E is reporting that 3,482 customers in Menlo Park in the neighborhoods between Bayfront Expressway and El Camino Real are without power.

The outage began around 2:30 p.m. today (6/21) and the cause is under investigation. There is no restoration time yet, according to PG&E.

In a notice to residents, the city says that a substation breaker has been tripped at the Belle Haven substation, which is near the Belle Haven Community Center at 100 Terminal Ave.

The Belle Haven substation was where PG&E crews had to make emergency repairs in Feburary 2023 when a fallen tree damaged a line. After many Mid-Peninsula residents spent three days in the park, PG&E closed down Highway 101 from Willow Road to Marsh Road for almost four hours to restore power in that instance.
