A massive power outage hit about 115,00 South Bay homes and businesses—including more than 6,000 Southern California Edison customers on the Palos Verdes Peninsula—shortly after 7 a.m. Sunday.
Power was restored to many customers by 8 a.m., and by, power was restored to about 30,000 of those accounts, SCE officials said. All but 11 accounts were restored by about 1:30 p.m.
According to SCE's online power outage map, the blackout affected customers in Rolling Hills Estates, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Torrance, San Pedro and Redondo Beach, among other areas.
The outage occurred when a substation in Torrance near the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and 190th Street went offline, and wires fell on a nearby street. For most of the day, trucks from SCE blocked 190th Street while crews repaired the lines.
"It's a decent size power line," SCE representative David Song told Patch. "It does serve a lot of folks."
Traffic signals were inoperable in some places during the blackout.
