More than 700 El Cen­tro res­i­dents were pow­er­less for about an hour Mon­day morn­ing.

The cause of the out­age was de­ter­mined to be a bird that came in con­tact with elec­tri­cal equip­ment, said Im­pe­rial Ir­ri­ga­tion Dis­trict Me­dia Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer Mar­ion Cham­pion.

A to­tal of 787 Im­pe­rial Ir­ri­ga­tion Dis­trict cus­tomers were with­out elec­tric­ity from 7:21 a.m. Mon­day un­til power was com­pletely re­stored at 8:11 a.m. Mon­day, Cham­pion said.

Ar­eas af­fected were homes from La Brucherie Road to east to Eighth Street, and from Olive Av­enue to south of Ross Av­enue.
