Southern California Edison (SCE) crews are continuing work on power outages resulting from remnants of Hurricane Dolores.

As of 12:30 p.m. today, there were approximately 1,695 customers without power territory wide. The areas most impacted were the Antelope Valley, Tehachapi and San Joaquin Valley.

The weather is clearing, and no new storms are anticipated.

Safety remains SCE's highest priority. Customers are reminded if they see a downed power line or dangling wire, even if it appears not to be live, don't touch or approach it or anything that is in contact with it, and call 911 immediately.

Customers may report outages at 1-800-611-1911 and get the latest information using the SCE outages app at, or at the SCE website, Twitter and Facebook pages.

Additional Safety Tips:

  • Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.
  • Make sure you have a battery-operated radio and flashlights. Check the batteries to make sure they’re fresh. Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage. Do not use candles because they pose a significant fire hazard.
