About 1,600 homes and businesses in Silver Lake lost power tonight and it might take up to 10 hours to have service restored, according to the Department of Water Power. One resident who was driving through the area said it appeared that the blackout was centered near Rowena and Hyperion avenues. High winds started blowing through the area tonight but the the DWP, on its Twitter feed, did not provide a reason for the Silver Lake outage. “Hang in there folks,” said DWP tweet.
