Fp About 900 customers in Frazier Park in the Grapevine area were without electricity Tuesday afternoon, Southern California Edison said.

The area, which was hit by powerful winds and snowfalls from the recent storm, has been experiencing power outages since Monday night, when about 2,500 people were affected, a spokeswoman for the utility said.

Snow and ice have made it difficult for crews to reach downed power lines, according to the utility, which had no estimate for when power would be restored.

Another storm is expected to batter the region with moderate to locally heavy snow beginning Wednesday, the National Weather Service said Tuesday afternoon.

Interstate 5 in the Grapevine area will likely be affected by snow and ice, according to the Weather Service.
