Southern California Edison (SCE) crews are working safely and quickly to restore power to areas affected by weather-related outages. Due to the severity of the storms, estimated restoration times are not currently available. SCE is bringing in approximately 200 crews to identify and repair the damage caused by the rain and wind storms.
SCE reminds customers that severe weather could result in service interruptions overnight and that they should take steps now in their homes and businesses to be prepared.
If you see a downed power line or dangling wire — even if it appears not to be live — don’t touch or approach it or anything that is in contact with it and call 911 immediately.
SCE encourages customers to get ready for potential outages by taking some measures.
"After Sunday’s storm, Southern California Edison crews were making good progress to safely restore power to areas affected by weather-related outages that impacted the SCE service territory.
"As of 11:45 a.m. Monday, crews were working diligently to restore power to approximately 28,000 customers who are experiencing service impacts resulting from the heavy rain and high winds storms that swept through the area.
"SCE crews are prioritizing restoration to customers who have experienced the longest outages and are working non-stop to restore power to customers experiencing an electric service interruption."
