About 8:15 a.m. Monday, June 11, the power went out from Azelea Trails in the north to Anza. About 30 minutes later, power was restored to Idyllwild.
Later that morning, Southern California Edison was still troubleshooting its system to determine the cause, according to Susan Cox in the SCE corporate communications office. At that time, she had no estimate of when power would be fully restored.
SCE said 7,758 customers were affected. This was only two months since the last major outage.
Anza Electric Cooperative did alert its customers shortly before the outage darkened the Hill with the following message, “Systemwide power outage due to Edison issue. No ETA on power restoration yet. We’ll keep you posted.”
