Nearly 10,000 Still Without Power in L.A.

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Of the some 40,000 LADWP customers left without power over the last stormy (kinda) day, about 9,900 are still in the dark, according to the utility. That number is made up of 4,800 customers in South L.A., 1,800 on the Eastside and another 1,800 in Koreatown. Crews are still working to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.
