SMUD: Power is restored in East Sacramento

Bee Staff

SMUD reported that power has been restored to about 3,800 customers in East Sacramento, where the outage occurred Friday night.

The cause was a faulty underground cable, said Bob Burns, a spokesman for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

Burns said some customers’ power had come back on by about 10:30 p.m. and all power was restored by midnight.
