Some of Stanford's residential areas and parts of Menlo Park lost power for up to three and a half hours Sunday night after Pacific Gas & Electric Co. experienced circuit problems.
The outage, which affected 1,571 customers, occurred just before 7 p.m., said Scott Blakey, a spokesman for PG&E. Power was restored to about half of PG&E's customers by 10 p.m. and to all customers by 10:30 p.m., the utility company reported.
Blakey said the circuit mishap
involved failure of an insulator and the incident was not Y2K
