The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power is working to restore power that was knocked out shortly before lunch in Sherman Oaks today. It was caused by a by a falling tree limb and 2,600 customers are affected. "Crews are on site working to repair it as quickly as possible," Spokeswoman Stephanie Interaino said over the phone. However, she had no estimate when power would be back. Crews had repaired the initial damage done by the tree, but when they tried to reenergize the grid it did not work prompting them to figure out what else was damaged.
