On the first day of classes, a power outage struck City College’s Ocean Campus east bungalows, cutting electricity in a variety of classes and student services.
The outage, which began 12:25 p.m., cut WiFi and power services for Ocean Campus’ math labs, The Guardsman, student account services and the legal affairs department.
Students relied on phone data to access the internet; teachers turned to their lamps to provide their classes light.
Pacific Gas and Electric claimed that a preliminary finding determined the outage was caused by scheduled maintenance work. A repair crew showed up to restore power around 5 p.m.
