As of 10 a.m. Monday, there were 3,731 Southern California Edison (SCE) customers without power territory wide, which spans north to the Sierras, south to Orange County, East to the Arizona border and west to Santa Barbara.
SCE crews responded where needed.
Safety remains SCE’s highest priority. Customers are reminded if they 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. Customers in burn areas should watch for possible flooding and mudslides.
Additional Safety Tips:
Customers are reminded if they see a downed power line or dangling wire, even if it appears not to be live, don’t touch or approach it.
Also do not put anything in contact with a downed or dangling wire; call 911 immediately.
Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.
Make sure you have battery-operated radio and flashlights. Check the batteries to make sure they’re fresh.
Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage. Do not use candles because they pose a significant fire hazard.
