LADWP 3:00 pm Outage Update: LADWP Crews Make Progress Restoring Power in Areas Hit by Heavy Winds
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) crews have made steady progress in restoring power to 11,978 customers from the peak 23,000 without power earlier in the day. Currently there are 11,022 electric customers experiencing power service interruptions stemming from 330 outages incidents in several neighborhoods across the city. LADWP is scheduling District Crews and Tree Trimming Crews to have adequate coverage for the evening. Forecasts predict heavy winds into the night.
Wind storms typically result in power outages as dried palm fronds, tree branches, downed trees and other debris fall and make contact with power lines. LADWP crews are working as diligently and as safely as possible under these heavy wind conditions to restore power to customers affected.
The following communities have the most number of customers impacted:
Hollywood Hills West 1,063
Pacific Palisades 349
Lake Balboa 99
Canoga Park 1,525
If Your Power Goes Out
