Electricity restored for some customers in the San Bernardino Mountains – San Bernardino Sun


Electricity was due to be restored by the end of the night of Monday January 3 for some of the Southern California Edison customers in Crestline and Lake Arrowhead without power. after a strong storm has turned the region upside down.

For some, this outage affected their telephone, television and Internet service.

After Edison crews spent the weekend repairing lines, 144 customers covering six outages were left without power on Monday afternoon, spokeswoman Diane Castro said. Edison was hoping most of those failures would be fixed by 11 p.m. Monday, Castro said.

Snow-laden trees and branches fell on the lines around the mountain, causing many blackouts on the main circuit and smaller circuits, Castro said. As Edison’s crews repaired the lines, they discovered other damage that had not yet been reported. Additionally, closed and obstructed roads, such as the devastated Highway 18 south of Crestline, along with limited cell and radio reception, delayed repairs.

The main circuit was repaired Monday morning.

“We understand that these outages have been a hardship for customers in the mountainous communities of Crestline and Arrowhead whose New Years have been significantly affected by power outages, and we currently have several resources, including service teams. helicopters working diligently to repair remaining breakdowns and restore power. Said Castro.
