Outage has been restored

I lose electric power whenever there is a storm, and a company (PG&E) robot just called after a 3-hour outage and said (to my answering machine robot):
The outage in your area has been restored to most locations in your area.
This sounds like a near miss, which one usage dictionary says is not an error, despite its apparent lack of logic.
