LOS ANGELES (September 8, 2020)– LADWP’s power restoration crews made major progress overnight, restoring power to more than 13,000 customers and reducing the number of customers currently affected by power outages to 8,704 as of Noon Tuesday.
Our most affected communities include:
Metro Area (South of Mulholland)
West Adams- 1,522
Los Feliz- 359
Larchmont – 223
San Fernando Valley
Panorama City- 660
North Hollywood – 184
Sun Valley – 194
Mission Hills – 251
Since Monday afternoon, our crews have restored power to more than half of all neighborhood outages, reducing the number of incidents affecting five to twenty customers each, from over 300 to 131 incidents as of Noon today. In total, there are approximately 4,700 customers affected by these outages. While our crews work to restore power to the remaining affected customers within 48-hours, despite every effort and using all available resources there will be some customers who unfortunately experience outages over 48-hours.
As previously reported, LADWP requested mutual aid from nearby utilities to aid in restoration efforts, however, they have indicated they are unable to provide support at this time due to restoration work ongoing in their service areas.
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.
We will provide additional updates throughout the duration of restoration work here at http://www.ladwpnews.com, on Twitter @LADWP and on NextDoor.
