California Heat Knocks Out Electricity for Thousands of Los Angeles Residents

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The heat this week in Southern California got pretty unbearable.  With multiple days over 100 degrees in Temecula Valley, to the northwest in Los Angeles County the heat got so back that it knocked power out to thousands of customers.

On Tuesday, power was out for about 7,000 customers throughout Los Angeles County, including about 3,000 in the city of Los Angeles.

Southern California Edison officials said the utility reached its year-to-date consumption of 23,055 megawatts on Monday, just shy of its all-time weekday peak of 23,303 on Aug. 31, 2007.

Overnight, outages were also reported in Brentwood and Sherman Oaks.

SCE replaced 245 transformers between Saturday and Tuesday morning.

      Was the EPA informed that if the power would be turned back on a rare species of Mosquitoes may parish and therefore you nolonger are allowed this so called power and since the EPA has determined the little fish need not be bothered with the drought how about the Mosquitos. Something smells fishy here. If all the Pelosi’s would be removed from california the environement may have a chance.
