Power restored to 2,000 Hollywood Hills residents
Power was restored early Tuesday morning to about 2,000 Hollywood Hills residents who spent the evening in the dark after a tree fell on power lines.
Los Angeles Department of Water and Power spokeswoman Carol Tucker said two circuit feeders were affected in the outage. She said one was restored at 5:41 a.m. while the other was reenergized at 6:57 a.m.
Tucker said the tree fell onto power lines in the 2300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard around 6:46 p.m. Monday.
Crews worked throughout the night to repair the circuit feeders, Tucker said. On its Twitter feed Tuesday morning, DWP thanked affected residents for their patience.
