I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Power back in all of Alhambra, but other SGV cities not so lucky

More than a week after the wind storm hit, 2000 + San Gabriel Valley customers remain without power.As of 5pm Tuesday, the outage numbers according to So Cal Edison:

Altadena -Total number affected 13,050Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 505Arcadia -Total number affected 35,844Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 1,389La Cañada Flintridge -Total number affected 10,855Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 251MonroviaTotal number affected 10,957Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 525South PasadenaTotal number affected 9,967Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 359San GabrielTotal number affected 13,292Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 479Temple CityTotal number affected 11,076Number out as of 5 p.m. Tues. 937

The company issued a release on Tuesday saying that crews had been working around the clock and would continue to do so, and apologizing for the inconvenience.

One of the complications SCE is facing is a safety concern.Where trees have taken out lines and poles, crews may be able to reconstruct poles, but trees may also have taken down the lines between poles and homes.SCE crews also need to repair those lines as part of the process of safely restoring power to individual customers.Crews will continue to work around the clock to restore service until power has been restored to all customers.Since Saturday, SCE has opened community outreach centers in the hardest hit areas where customers were provided with free basic supplies, including flashlights, water and ice.If you see a downed line or dangling wire — even if it appears not to be live — don’t touch or approach it and call 911 immediately.Safety remindersWhen power is out, SCE reminds its customers to:• Use flashlights and have a battery-operated radio. Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage; do not use candles because they pose a significant fire hazard.• Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.• Do not use equipment indoors that is designed for outdoor cooking. Such equipment can emit carbon monoxide and other toxic gases.• Leave the doors of your refrigerator and freezer closed to keep your food as fresh as possible. An unopened refrigerator can keep foods cold enough for a couple of hours. A half full freezer will stay cold for up to 24 hours and a full freezer for 48 hours. If you must eat food that was refrigerated or frozen, check it carefully for signs of spoilage.• Check on your neighbors to make sure everyone is safe.
