Utility crews across Southern California have been working tirelessly to return power to customers throughout these three storms. The L.A. Department of Water reported 1,700 outages at 10 a.m., half the amount reported earlier in the morning.

Southern California Edison said they had 6,986 customers without service. Hardest hit areas served by Edison include Running Springs (442 customers), Valencia (938), Rowland Heights (517), Whittier (381), Palm Springs (340), Corona (286) and Rancho Palos Verdes (286).

"In Barstow, SCE crews have been hampered by problems getting to equipment and facilities to make repairs because of snow," the utility reported. " It is snowing in Arrowhead, Kernville and Shaver, and crews may face challenges in those communities later in the day because of predicted severe weather conditions."
