About 9 a.m., today, Wednesday, July 27, two Southern California Edison power lines touched inappropriately.
A 33-kilovolt line and 12 kilovolt came into contact and caused a substantial outage from the Hill to San Jacinto. The caused is unknown, but possibilities could be wind or lines sagging from the heat.
Full power was restored shortly after 10:30 a.m.
The northern boundary was Esplanade Ave. Its southern boundary extended to Double View Drive in Idyllwild. The western boundary was Lyon Ave and power was lost as far east as Tahquitz View Drive in Idyllwild.
