Power's Out on the Third Street Promenade
Sorry shoppers, there are several stores on the Third Street Promenade who've lost power, reports CBS2, and "they could remain without electricity until as late as 2 a.m. Tuesday." An initial outage in Santa Monica due to "underground equipment failure" cut power to about 2,000 customers. Now about 50 customers in the vicinity of the "mall area in the vicinity of Fourth and Second streets, Santa Monica Boulevard and California Avenue" has remained affected by the outage.
