Power Out To 10K Customers After Weekend Winter Storm

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The winter storm that blew through Southern California over the weekend left more than 10,000 Southern California customers without power Monday morning.

Southern California Edison told the Los Angeles Times that 10,656 customers were without power, from Orange County to Santa Monica, after one of the biggest storms of the winter season.

Crews have been working around the clock to fix the lines.

That same storm dumped more than a foot of fresh powder in the local mountains, forcing two school districts in the San Bernardino Mountains to declare Monday a snow day.

    Sure a good thing SCE isn’t in Colorado or back east where they REALLY have snow and ice. I have lived in So Cal since 1975 and have had so many power outages over the year in OK weather it is ridiculous! The little bit of wind and rain in the lowlands and it is pow–dark! I know in our area the utilties up until recently were archaic and it was waiting game for them to blow and they would HAVE to upgrade. And the rates are high to boot!
