Long Beach Update

As of 4:30 a.m. Saturday, we have restored service to approximately 190 of the 260 customers that were without service by connecting generators. We are continuing to place generators in areas that do not have power and expect to have all customers restored to service by Saturday afternoon. SCE will re-open its distribution center at Cesar Chavez community center at 8 a.m. Saturday to distribute ice and water. There are currently 10 generators in place serving businesses and residents. As the underground network system is restored, we will transition these customers off the generators. When this happens, they will experience a short power outage, which could last up to 45 minutes. We encourage customers in Long Beach to make every effort to conserve use of electricity as we continue to return the system to its full operational capacity. The safety of the public and our crews remain our highest priority. We thank the city of Long Beach for its cooperation and for the safety efforts of first responders in the Long Beach Fire and Police departments. Get the latest update >
