Parts of North Auburn and Bowman were without power early Thursday night after strong winds and a heavy rainstorm rolled through the area. Among the businesses without electricity was the Foothill Bowling Center on Bowman Road, which shut down league games after the power was cut. While Pacific Gas & Electric was unable to immediately provide a direct cause for the blackout, the Placer County Sheriff's Department did receive an alert of a tree falling onto power lines at Bell Road and Haines Road, causing a reported signal-light outage. This brief will be updated as more information becomes available. - Gus Thomson
