DISCOVERY BAY, Calif. (AP) - Two warming centers were established east of San Francisco after a service outage left roughly 6,000 utility customers without gas.

KNTV reports Monday that the Pacific Gas and Electric has 150 service representatives were working on the issue.

Officials don't have a time estimate for service restoration.

PG&E spokeswoman Mayra Tostado says that the utility had problems with its gas distribution system in Discovery Bay, and now officials are trying to determine the extent the cold weather played in the loss of gas pressure.

Warming centers were set up at Timber Point Elementary School and at the Discovery Bay Community Center. Meals and a warm place to rest will be available.

With the outage, the utility warns that all representatives from PG&E have identification and people should ask for it if they are unsure the representative is legitimate.
