(CNN) — Authorities worked Thursday to restore power after a blackout in parts of southern California, Arizona and Mexico on Thursday affected more than 1 million customers and caused widespread traffic jams.

San Diego Gas & Electric said all of its 1.4 million customers were without power.

The cause of the outage was a power line break on a feeder line in Arizona, said San Diego Police Department spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown. The department was working on generator power, 911 calls were being answered and officers from the day shift and traffic units were kept on overtime to respond to the power outage, she said.
