    Thursday power lines were cut to these Palmdale families during a freak summer storm. Friday the family decided to pack up and move until their electricity was restored. The high in Palmdale Friday was 104 degrees Friday. The record was 110 degrees in 1961.

    The National Weather Service warned Southern Californians Friday night to beware of "excessive heat."

    An "excessive heat warning" was in effect through Saturday evening for the valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties as well as the mountains of southwest California.

    The Weather Service noted that heat and humidity in San Bernardino and Riverside counties "will push conditions to just below excessive heat warning criteria."

    "An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur.   The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat and illnesses are likely," according to the National Weather Service.
