Updated, 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, details from the scene.
A Wednesday evening power outage in Orinda, caused by a downed power line, lasted past midnight in Thanksgiving Thursday as officials detoured traffic from Moraga Way a half-mile south of downtown Orinda.
PG&E emergency crews had set up portable lights to work on the problem just south of Moraga Way and Orchard Road. The detour made use of Orchard and Brookside roads.
A PG&E update at 11:33 p.m. Tuesday stated that 21 customers remained without power. Power was out in the Glorietta area at midnight.
The outage led to delays for BART commuters Wednesday evening, according to PG&E and BART officials.
The power outage began at 5:41 p.m. and 1,500 customers were without power Wednesday evening, PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said.
The power outage briefly darkened the Orinda BART station, causing 10-minute delays on trains heading to and from Pittsburg/Bay Point, according to a BART dispatcher. BART had recovered from the delays by about 6:45 p.m.
You can track the power outage on a PG&E online map.
