Brian Wallace sends along news that an advertising banner fell off a small plane and landed on top of power lines above the San Francisco Tennis Club at 5th and Brannan Streets shortly before noon today. Traffic was backed up for blocks surrounding the club. A PG&E spokesman said that power was knocked out to about 2,000 homes and businesses but crews had restored power to all but about 250 customers by 1:00 PM.
