Thousands of customers without power for hours as crews tried to fix downed power lines snapped by a strong winter storm had their electricity restored late Saturday, but some were still in the dark on Sunday.
Heavy rainfall caused outages from Winnetka to Bel Air to Echo Park, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
The utility reported about 200 customers were without power Sunday morning. According to the DWP, the areas affected were San Pedro and Hollywood.
Natural gas services were not being affected by the storm, but Southern California Gas Company officials warned residents not to proactively turn gas meters off. Customers who smell gas odor or suspect a leak were advised to call 911.
Because of the rain, the LA Department of Parks of Recreation is shutting off its sprinklers for the next 10 days and are urging homeowners to do the same until the storm passes.
