Southern California Edison (SCE) is reporting this morning that they have about 6,600 customers without power in Los Angeles County, according to Altadena Patch, where nearly 900 customers are in the dark today.

SCE is attributing the outages to the #LAStorm, per a Tweet issued by the utility this morning.

With another series of high winds bearing down on the region, it's possible that power lines could come down today and tomorrow, leading to more outages.

A high wind warning, issued when winds blow at sustained speeds of 40 mph with gusts of at least 58 mph, went into effect at 3 a.m. in the Santa Clarita Valley and the Los Angeles County portions of the San Gabriel and Santa Monica mountains. It was scheduled to remain in effect until 3 p.m. Saturday, explains City News Service.
