'My dogs are still panting!': Alhambra residents react to power outages

Some Alhambra residents checked into hotels and dipped their pets in pools early this week when power outages left them without electricity in near triple-digit heat.

More than 600 residents were without power Tuesday after a power transformer blew near Garfield Avenue and Pine Street. Southern California Edison also cited "trees in equipment," "weather conditions," and "upgrading equipment" as reasons for the three outage areas in Alhambra. All power has been restored as of Thursday, according to Edison.

One Alhambra resident checked into a hotel in Pasadena during the outage. "I'm supposed to be on vacation. It's hard enough that the air conditioner can't keep up," said G. Blandchard, who lives on Garfield near Alhambra Road.

Roy, who lives on Garfield south of Pine, sat with a book outside of his apartment building Wednesday afternoon. He said it was hotter inside his apartment than it was outside.

Residents also wrote in on Facebook, describing how the power outage was affecting them in the heat wave. "My dogs are still panting!" said Brenda Gonzalez. "One literally slept in his kiddy pool all night."

"I'm with Brenda," wrote Andrew Giovanni Gomez, "my cat is not having an easy time."

"No power since 8 p.m. last night," Igor Koltunov posted Wednesday at 11:46 a.m. "Now hopefully the fridge full of food won't be ruined by the time they restore the power."
