Important SCE Update – Pending Wind Storm
As you know, Southern California is experiencing extremely dangerous high winds, fire activity and Red Flag conditions and residents may lose power.
Due to public safety concerns, SCE may also turn off power to specific circuits in areas where there is a high risk of predicted extreme winds. Your city/county area has one/several of these impacted circuits.
When SCE turns off power to a circuit it takes into account wind speeds higher than historical averages, humidity levels and other conditions. The circuit will be reenergized when wind speeds are reduced and the circuit is assessed which may include a physical inspection. If a circuit is turned off at night, it will not be reenergized until daylight hours.
Forecasts indicate continued and worsening weather conditions in Southern California for the remainder of the week. If outages do occur, the power will stay off until SCE personnel can patrol and inspect lines before returning them to service so power can be restored safely.
We share your priority to protect public safety and we understand the inconvenience of turning off electric service. We are making every effort to reach out to customers in affected areas to make them aware in advance of shutting off power.
Estimated power restoration information related to these specific areas will be updated as it becomes available. If you have additional questions you can reach out to me or our outage center at 855-683-9067. Please note that this phone number is for city/county officials only – you can direct residential and business customers to SCE.com/outages for additional customer information.
