The record-breaking summer storm that continued to douse the Central Coast on Sunday night might not be over yet.
Monsoonal moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Dolores will continue to stream north into San Luis Obispo County through Tuesday morning, bringing with it a chance of additional showers, according to local meteorologist John Lindsey.
The rare July storm knocked out power to more than 10,000 customers. By Monday morning, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. had restored power to all but 1,300 customers, said PG&E spokesman Tom Cuddy.
Most of the remaining power outages are located in Paso Robles and Templeton; power is expected to be restored to customers by Monday evening.
Never miss a local story.
For about 300 customers, most of whom are in rural North County areas, restoring power will require PG&E to set new poles, install new transformers and hang new power lines, Cuddy said.
Here's a look at rainfall totals around SLO County from Saturday night through Monday at 9 a.m., as reported by Lindsey.
