Severe weather has caused a string of power outages throughout Los Angeles. Approximately 1,600 customers are still without power as of Tuesday afternoon.
Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) officials said Mid-Wilshire was affected the most with 2,625 reported power outages. There were 2,008 reported outages in Mid-City and 1,628 in Hollywood.
As of Tuesday afternoon, LADWP crews restored service to more than 100,600 of its 1.4 million customers who were without power as a result of the rain and wind moving through the Los Angeles area.
According to LADWP public affairs officer Kim Hughes, LADWP crews continue to work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.
“It’s been very time consuming,” Hughes said. “We have all our crew out working to fix many of the power lines that have been hit by the storms.”
Multiple outages, she said, have been caused by downed power lines, many of which were caused by tree branches and other debris fall that made contact with or severed the power lines.
As of Tuesday morning, 1,424 customers were still without power in the Larchmont area. Hughes said LADWP will update the numbers throughout the day.
Southern California Edison officials reported 34,000 customers were affected by power outages throughout Southern California as of Monday morning but weren’t able to report specific affected areas.
