Utilities Recover Electricity As Winds Weak In Southern California

Associated Pres

LOS ANGELES – Winds subsided in Santa Ana in Southern California on Friday, and utilities were restoring electricity to thousands of consumers who were cut off to prevent wildfires.

Seasonal dry winds caused strong gusts of wind on Thanksgiving Day, knocking down trees and causing other damage, while “public safety power outages” in high-risk areas interrupted traditional lunch plans.

The winds chopped up the material covering a large dome built in Burbank as a studio to develop entertainment content to be used in productions in Las Vegas.

One location in Los Angeles County experienced a gust at 143 km / h early Thursday morning, but the National Weather Service said the winds were not as strong on Friday.

No major wildfires were reported during peak winds, but red flag warnings were supposed to be in effect until evening.

By late morning, the Southern California Edison website had registered about 26,100 customers without electricity and less than 123,000 were still pending for outages. San Diego Gas & Electric has 3,000 customers without electricity, but the company said another 50,000 people could turn off their electricity.
