Power Out in Marina, Repairs Underway

A power outage near the marina affected customers beginning early Thursday morning.

This story was updated at 12:01 p.m.

About 40 customers are without power near the marina and crews are working to restore power to the area, according to information from Southern California Edison.

The outage began Wednesday night at 11:18 and was the result of a downed power line, according to David Song of Southern California Edison. At that time, about 4,000 customers were without power. 

"But within about 15 minutes, we had most people back up," Song said.

Power is expected to be restored around 4 p.m. Thursday, an alert from the power supplier said.

If you ever encounter a downed power line, stay away from it and call 911 to report the electrical emergency.

Well I think that was a bit poetic exageration the amount of time people were without power was closer to two hours, since it was pitch dark in the pocket where we live

I was shocked there was NO mention of it anywhere - not on breaking news, not on the local news, not even here, until Endre raised the question. Thanks, Endre, and thanks to the patch for researching. Oh, and I agree about the timing being a bit off. 15 minutes?? 2-3 hours for me!
