Winds shut down electric circuits
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – Thousands of Southern California Edison (SCE) customers spent part of their Thanksgiving without power.
Southern California Edison followed up a PSPS advisory shutting down several circuits in Riverside County because of high winds.
At one point Thursday afternoon, 4,256 customers were giving thanks without electricity. Shut-off switches were thrown in Menifee, Winchester, Canyon Lake, Homeland and Romoland.
Some circuits in Los Angeles and Ventura counties were also affected.
SCE said says it generally sends customers a notice of a PSPS power shutoff 48 hours in advance.
"If your power has been shut off, we will restore power as soon as the weather conditions permit, and crews have inspected the power lines to confirm it is safe to restore power,'' Edison said.
SCE customers can sign up for alerts to let them know if the power will be shut off.
Some of the largest, most devastating wildfires in California history have been linked to electrical equipment.
