And with that power has been off for over an hour. No response from city power, but another area they said they couldn't restore due to rain.

Multiple areas are out.

Factors affecting it:
Old cables
System overloading
Rain
Whoosy techs that are afraid of getting wet
Cable thieves making use of the cold dark weather

Probably yeah. Rain apparently makes it so they can't fix anything.
