As many as 3,281 customers lost power at 4:43 p.m., according to SDG&E's outage map. The utility said it was assessing the cause of the outage, which was expected to be resolved by 9 p.m.

The blackout came as showers fell across San Diego late Monday afternoon.

Mark Kastner Had just returned to San Diego from a family trip to Zion National Park.

"When your internet goes out all hell breaks loose," he jokes. The Kastners lit up their home with candles until the lights came back on.

By 11 p.m., 76 customers were still waiting to have their power restored, according to SDG&E. The utility said those customers might have to wait as late as 2:30 a.m. Tuesday for their power to come back. The power was restored by Tuesday morning.

Storm Damage

North County Fire Protection District crews responded to Olive Hill Road in Fallbrook at around 5 p.m. after a tree fell across a roadway. About 20 minutes later, the agency said the tree was cut up into pieces and the roadway was clear.
