Due to the huge storm that’s walloping San Diego, thousands of SDG&E customers – including dozens in Ocean Beach – lost their electrical power Wednesday morning (12/22/10). Apparently, it’s happening across the City and County.
East County residents lost their ground line telephone service yesterday and it still has not been turned back on.
