SILVER LAKE — An estimated 1,600 LADWP customers are without power tonight in Silver Lake, and service is not expected to be fully restored until 2 a.m., according to the utility’s outage map.
Some Twitter users reported that power went out at about 4:30 p.m.
The Eastsider has contacted the agency for more details.
Today’s outage comes two months after an electrical vault explosion in late June left 16,000 Silver Lake customers without service. After that outage, Councilman Mitch O’Farrell said that LADWP was looking at “what could be causing these repeat outages, identifying a long term solution, and what infrastructure improvements are necessary.”
Update: An LADWP spokeswoman said crews were trying to complete repairs to a distributing station to restore power. As many as 2,200 customers were without service at one point but that number was down to about 1,100 after 8 pm.
