About 121,000 customers across Southern California were without power early Sunday evening, utility officials said, as a winter storm brought rain and high winds to several areas. Some 80,000 Southern California Edison customers, mostly in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, were affected by outages, a spokesperson for the utility said at 6:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, as of 5:30 p.m., about 41,000 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers were without electricity “as a result of the strong rain and wind storm” that resulted in downed power lines, the agency said in a statement. Spokespersons for both Edison and LADWP said crews were working to restore power as quickly as possible, and warned customers to stay away from downed or dangling power wires or poles. FULL REPORT
