The following article is based on information from Southern California Edison’s map of current outages.

With the current dangerous Santa Ana wind conditions, Southern California Edison issued a warning concerning downed power lines.

This morning, Edison is facing a handful of unplanned power outages in Orange County:

  • Near Hilscher Park, Fullerton: started at 8:50 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4. Likely cause was wind-whipped trees fouling equipment. Edison has identified the problem and is working to restore power to 284 customers. No estimated restoration time is available.
