LOS ANGELES (September 7, 2020)–Crews continued to make progress throughout the day today, restoring power to over 22,000 customers since this morning. As of 9pm, 23,000 customers remain without power as crews continue working 16-hour shifts around the clock, following the record-breaking heat storm that hit Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend, causing outages across the region.
As of 9pm, our most affected communities include:
Metro Area (South of Mulholland)
Leimert Park – 1789 East Hollywood – 2332
Park LaBrea – 1332 Hollywood Hills – 1032
Koreatown – 1519 West Adams – 1537
Mid-Wilshire – 1810
San Fernando Valley
Sun Valley – 2006 Valley Glen – 559
Sylmar – 359 Lake View Terrace – 879
North Hollywood – 224 Arleta – 203
Pacoima – 296 Encino – 204
There remain over 250 smaller neighborhood outages, which crews are working to restore, along with larger partial-circuit outages. Current estimated time for response remains 24-48 hours, but this could change. Dispatchers are assigning repair crews to locations where customers have been out the longest and are reviewing and updating data on assignments and outages. As they continue to assess our progress and the potential for mutual aid, we will update our estimated response times, which could be extended longer for customers experiencing neighborhood outages.
We want to reassure our customers that we are using all available resources to address remaining outages and restore power as quickly and safely as possible. If you are affected, we thank you for your patience as we, along with other utilities in Southern California, work as hard and fast as possible to restore power to our respective customers.
We will provide additional updates throughout the duration of restoration work here at http://www.ladwpnews.com, on Twitter @LADWP and on NextDoor.
