Thousands without power in Huntington Beach [Updated]

Nearly 5,000 Southern California Edison customers are without power in Huntington Beach because of an underground cable that failed Thursday afternoon, said Charles Coleman, Southern California Edison spokesman.

About 4,700 customers were affected by the outage, Coleman said. Crews were attempting to isolate the problem in order to make the needed repairs, he said, adding that there was no estimated time as to when power would be restored.

The area affected by the outage is bordered by Yorktown Avenue on the north, Beach Boulevard on the west, Indianapolis Avenue on the south and Magnolia Street on the east.

[Updated 3:47 p.m.: Crews have restored power to all but 230 customers, Coleman said. He said those customers should expect their power to be restored at around 6:30 p.m.]
