Oilfields to the south affected, too

Power went out in South Taft, Taft Heights and the oilfields south of Taft Tuesday afternoon.

PG&E said 474 customers are affected in an area that includes most of South Taft, a large section of Taft Heights and a largely uninhabited area stretching south over 25 Hills to the Hovey Hills area.

No reason was given for the outage, which started at 1:12 p.m.

PG&E estimates it will have the power back by 4:30 p.m.
