County Supervisors To Meet With Edison Official About Ongoing Outages
TEMPLE CITY (CBS) — The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is expected to meet with an official from Southern California Edison Tuesday about ongoing power outages in Temple City and Altadena.
More than 10,000 customers are still without power after last week’s wind storm. Crews, which restored power to 5,000 residents Tuesday morning, say their efforts have been hampered by downed trees.
At one point, 250,000 Edison and DWP customers were affected.
Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich says he’s concerned about the elderly with near-freezing temperatures at night.
Edison had expected to have power restored to most of the remaining customers by Monday night.
Residents say they are frustrated by conflicting information.
“The updates don’t tell the truth,” Jose Salvido tells CBS2. “The facts are different. That’s all I can say. The telephone system says one thing and they don’t really know what’s going on.”
