Storm-Related Outages

Current Status

Storm-Related Outages - January 21, 2017, as of 3:00 p.m.

  • As of 3 p.m., approximately 8,500 customers have been impacted by weather-related outages. The hardest hit areas include communities in the San Bernardino mountains.
  • The third of three of storms is expected to bring heavy rain, strong winds and more snow across our service territory Sunday and Monday. The last two storms caused outages across the region.
  • Our crews have been working around the clock to restore power and make needed repairs. But severe weather conditions have made some areas in the mountains inaccessible.
  • Vegetation management crews are patrolling areas that are more susceptible to fallen debris when there is heavy rain and snow particularly canyons and hillside communities.
  • The Customer Call Center is available for any electrical emergencies. If you have an electrical emergency, call 800-611-1911. If you see a downed power line, do not touch it. Call 911 immediately.

Safety Tips

  • If you see a downed power line, never try to remove it or touch it. The line may be energized. Call SCE at 1-800-611-1911 or 911 immediately.
  • Wet yards with puddles on cement or grass can carry electricity. If a line is down in your yard, remain indoors and call 911 immediately.
  • Never try to remove a broken tree limb or branch that has come in contact with a power line.
  • Make sure you have 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 fire hazard.
  • When power is out, traffic signals may be out so approach those intersections as four-way stops.
  • Customers may report outages at 800-611-1911, online or through the SCE Outages app. We have information on our website and on Facebook and Twitter.
