Update #4, 10:30 a.m. Sunday:
We are pleased to report that LADWP crews successfully restored power this morning to all customers affected by the power outage in the north San Fernando Valley that began last night at approximately 6:55 p.m. Restoration for the remaining 94,000 customers affected by this incident occurred between 6am and 8am this morning. Crews continue assessing damage at Receiving Station J and will make permanent repairs, but they were able to restore power while this work continues.
Any customers in the area still without power should check their circuit breakers as they can trip off when power disruptions occur. If any problems persist, they should call 1-800-DIAL-DWP (1-800-342-5397) so that a crew can be dispatched to investigate the cause.
We thank our customers for their patience as crews worked through the night to restore service. While efforts to make permanent repairs are the primary focus of all involved, a full investigation into the cause of the fire that occurred Saturday evening will also be conducted and reported publicly.
This is the final incident update. Should circumstances warrant, we will provide further updates.
