26,000 customers still without power after windstorm

A shrinking but still substantial number of Los Angeles area residents remained without power Monday, four days after the height of a damaging windstorm.

As of 6 a.m., Southern California Edison reported 26,783 customers remained without power, concentrated in the San Gabriel Valley and foothills communities. There were no reports of additional outages from the winds Sunday night.

The utility said it expected to restore service to nearly all of the customers still without power by 8 p.m. Monday. Edison spokesman Steve Conroy said at one point the storm affected 419,000 customers throughout the company's service area.

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and Pasadena Water and Power officials reported that service had been restored to all but a handful of customers by Sunday.

Edison set up distribution centers over the weekend to pass out water, ice and flashlights to people who remained without power in Altadena, Arcadia, La Cañada-Flintridge, San Gabriel, Sierra Madre and Temple City, some of the hardest-hit areas.
