Neighbors have reported multiple power outages in Noe Valley over the last month. We're curious: is the power going out more often than the historical norm or does Twitter magnify small outages? Here are examples of some Tweets from the last few days:
@noevalleysf @rle Electrical pole fire on 27 street takes the power out for neighborhood. PGE said that it was caused by fog

@noevalleysf is there public data on power outages in SF? My power on Clipper has been out for 3 hours in the last month.

PG&E tracks current outages, but as far as we can tell doesn't make public data on power outage trends by neighborhood. So we're asking for your input - send us reports of power out within Noe Valley via email or Twitter and we'll map all data. Maybe there's a trend we can talk to PG&E about.
