Echo Park —  LADWP crews are working to restore electrical service to a large section of the neighborhood tonight.

It’s not clear how many locations are without power. But it appears that many blocks between Echo Park Avenue and Alvarado Street are without service.

One Eastsider reader said that the lights at the Echo Park Vons were were “flickering madly”and only two registers were operating. Others reported a brown-out or partial power outage beginning shortly after 8 pm before things went totally dark.

LADWP on Twitter said full service is expected to be restored by 3 am.

The L.A. Fire Department urged residents not to use candles.
