Power out in parts of Echo Park and Silver Lake

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.:

  1. Power is back on here! Just came back on at about 4:45, about an hour after I gave up and threw out all the ice cream in my freezer. Still pleasantly surprised, called LADWP around 3am and they said not to expect power back on til at least 8am.
