• SGV Residents and Businesses Out of Power


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Thousands of people and businesses were without electricity today thanks to power outages from Montebello to Hollywood, but not all of the outages could be blamed on the high winds blowing through the Southland.

    A total of 3,330 customers, including residences and businesses, in Alhambra were without electricity as a result of a car hitting a power pole between Atlantic Boulevard and Westmont Drive, according to Caroline Aoyagi of Southern California Edison.

    The power outage was first reported at 5:46 a.m. and affected the area between Poplar Boulevard and Ramona Road, stretching from Atlantic Boulevard on the east to Westmont Drive on the west, Aoyagi said.

    Full restoration was expected by noon.

    “As the wind picks up, we’re on stand by,” Aoyagi said. “We think there may be some other power outages.”

    About 1,500 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers in the Fairfax District were temporarily without power this morning and about 1,000 in the Beverly Crest area were still without power due to wind conditions, the utility’s Jane Galbraith said.

    On Wednesday night, about 28,000 Edison customers in Alhambra, Montebello and South Pasadena had their power knocked out, apparently due to an animal crawling at the Alhambra substation, the utility reported. Those customers had their power back in about 20 minutes.

    Also Wednesday night, 1,040 DWP customers lost power near Hollywood Boulevard and Fountain Avenue in Hollywood for nearly three hours, Galbraith said.
