Power restored to most of 1,933 customers in Loma Linda blackout

November 21, 2011 |  9:41 am

Only 14 Loma Linda households remained without power Monday morning after a blackout rolled through the area, affecting nearly 2,000 customers.

The handful of people without power should have their electricity restored by 10 a.m. Monday, according to Southern California Edison spokeswoman Lauren Bartlett.

The blackout, which hit 1,933 customers Sunday, was caused by an equipment failure, Bartlett said.

All but the remaining 14 customers had service returned less than three hours after the power went out around 9:28 a.m. Sunday, she said.
