Customers all over the Hill from north of Pine Cove to Aguanga are being affected by a widespread power outage.

A Southern California Edison representative said tech crews are en route to the area to investigate the problem. Edison does not yet know the cause of the outage, but estimate power will be restored by noon.

Garner Valley, Anza, Santa Rosa and Aguanga residents report that their power is out. So do Pine Cove residents.

Residents in Stone Creek received a notice of a scheduled maintenance outage today, but the Edison rep said this widespread outage is not the result of scheduled maintenance.
