1500 people are without power tonight in parts of Downtown & North Concord, and early reports are saying it’s due to a blown transformer.
At least one person is also trapped in an elevator in Concord.
PG&E says the estimated time of restoration is just before midnight.
UPDATE: About half of the power has been restored to N. Concord & the downtown area after a blown transformer knocked out electricity earlier tonight. Full restoration is expected by 11:45pm. If you come upon any traffic signals that aren’t working, please treat it as a four-way stop.
Currently, about 800 people are without power.
