Power is out for 2,000 customers in Cheviot Hills
About 2,000 homes and businesses in the Cheviot Hills area of Los Angeles lost power Saturday night as a strong Pacific storm continued to soak the region with rain.
Maychelle Yee, a spokeswoman for the city Department of Water and Power, said the outage occurred about 7:30 p.m. and affected customers around Pico and La Cienega boulevards. She added that the loss of electricity probably was due to the weather.
