More than 4,000 L.A. DWP customers lost power tonight across Silver Lake and Echo Park, darkening a stretch of Sunset Boulevard stores, restaurants and bars, according ABC 7.
The agency was investigating the cause of the outage but there was no information on the LADWP website about how long it would take to have power restored.
Twitter user posted photos of darkened storefronts and nightclubs on Sunset Boulevard and commentary about the outage that began at about 9 p.m.:
Power outage. Silver Lake is lovely by candlelight if you can ignore all the cars honking on Sunset.

Helicopter hovering over Echo Park. Lights are out on Sunset. Misty rain falling. God, it's like the beginning of a YA dystopian novel.
