[ARCHIVED] Severe Weather May Cause Power Outages

sce outage

Due to extremely dangerous high winds, fire activity and Red Flag conditions, Southern California Edison reminds customers that they may lose power.

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. 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. 

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 re-energized 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 re-energized until daylight hours. SCE indicates that they are making every effort to reach out to customers in affected areas in advance of shutting off power. Estimated power restoration information related to these specific areas will be updated as it becomes available. In the event of an outage, please visit for updates.
