MARINA DEL REY (CBS) — A power outage left about 1,000 customers in the Marina del Rey area without electricity for about 90 minutes Wednesday.

“Failed underground equipment” lead to the outage, which happened shortly after 9 a.m., according to Lois Pitter Bruce of Southern California Edison.

The affected area was bounded on the north by Washington Boulevard, on the west by Dell Avenue, on the south by Panay Way and on the east by Palawan Way, Bruce said.
