Hawks fighting at PG&E substation knock out power for thousands
November 12, 2012, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service
Two red-tailed hawks are being blamed for a power outage that affected about 4,300 PG&E customers in Redwood City Saturday, according to a PG&E spokesman.

About 4,300 customers had no power after an outage was reported at 9:31 a.m., spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

All customers had power restored by 12:13 p.m., he said.

The outage appears to have been caused by two hawks that were fighting and hit equipment in a substation on Seaport Boulevard, according to Guidi.
