The number of PG&E customers without power in the South Bay because of weather-related outages was reduced to about 170 Wednesday afternoon, a utility spokeswoman said.

The outages began on Tuesday, and late Tuesday night about 7,600 customers were without power in the San Jose, Los Gatos and Morgan Hill areas.

All of the outages are believed to be weather-related but remain under investigation, said PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris.

"We do have crews on site and en route to each of the locations," Morris said.

She said she did not yet know when power would be fully restored.

A separate outage in South San Francisco was reported around 12:20 p.m. About 1,200 customers in several Peninsula cities were affected by that outage.
