A power outage in Canyon Country on Friday night left many customers still without power Saturday morning, according to Jeff Monford, senior advisor at Southern California Edison. 

Monford said he did not know how many were initially without power, when the outage first occurred, but said 144 are still without power as of 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.  

“[A] bad wire alerted the system which, naturally for safety, then turned off the power,” said Monford. “That leads to in-person inspections, and the in-person inspections allowed them to do the replacement that got some of the power up within an hour.” 

Monford said that although some of the power was up within an hour of the outage, crews are still, as of the time of this publication, inspecting the equipment.  

“You have to make sure it is absolutely…correctly, and perfectly replaced right for safety-sake,” said Monford. “That replacement has been ongoing and is going under testing.” 

The outage was reported at about 7:30 p.m. on Friday and occurred near the intersection of Sand Canyon Road and Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country.  

.Monford said the estimated time of power restoration is 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.
