CHICO, Calif. – PG&E said 6,600 customers in the north Chico area are without power.

The outage began at 11:34 a.m. and crews are currently investigating.

According to PG&E'S outage map, the estimated restoration time is between 2 to 3 p.m.

Action News Now is working to learn more and will provide updates as they become available.

Just last week, hundreds of residents in north Chico spent a good part of their Mother's Day without power. A PG&E worker told Action News Now some mylar foil balloons came in contact with the powerlines at Garner lane and Porchlight Court, which caused the outage to last for several hours.
