Wind knocks out power throughout Southland

More than 13,000 Southern California Edison customers were without electricity Sunday night after winds from the weekend storm knocked down power lines.

The outage was scattered throughout the utility’s service area but was concentrated in Laguna Hills, Laguna Woods, Santa Ana, Long Beach, Whittier, West Covina and Santa Monica.

An Edison spokeswoman said repair crews would work through the night. All told, nearly 143,000 Edison customers experienced flickering lights or lost power during the storm, which brought rain, snow and falling temperatures to the region.
