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.
  • Near the intersection of Hazard Ave. and North Euclid St. in Westminster: started earlier this morning at 2:40 a.m. Likely cause was equipment failure. Edison has identified the problem and is working to restore power to 28 customers. No estimated restoration time is available.

  • East 2nd St. west of North Lacy St. in Santa Ana: started Friday, Oct. 4. Likely cause was “weather conditions.” Edison is assessing the damage effecting 25 customers. Power is expected to be restored later this evening.
  • Near Madison Park in Santa Ana: started earlier this morning at 3:21 a.m. The cause is not known at this time. Edison is aware of the problem effecting 1148 customers. No estimated restoration time is available.
