Power outage in Walnut Creek closes stores, messes up traffic

UPDATE 6 p.m. Traffic lights were back on, and Trader Joe's and Pet Food Express were open and bustling with shoppers.

California Boulevard is currently a major mess right now, with lights at at least two intersections in dark due to a power outage that has affected up to 5000 customers.

The parking lot for Trader Joe's and Pet Food Express is also nearly empty, with both stores in the dark.

On its website, PG&E posts that the outage was reported at 3:51 p.m. and estimated time of restoration isn't until around 6:45 p.m. A crew is en route to find out the source of the outage.
