UPDATE at 1:15. Anthony Bruce reports that the lights went on at the Berkeley Post Office at 12.45. PGE still maps two outages, one in North Berkeley and another south of the U.C. Campus. 

Trains are not stopping at the Downtown Berkeley BART station this morning because of a power outage, BART officials said.

BART reported the service disruption at about 9:45 a.m. Many traffic lights in Berkeley have also been affected by the outage.

PG&E reports that close to 17,000 customers in the Berkeley/Albany area are affected, and service is not expected to be restored until at least noon. More information can be found on the pge.com website
