As of Monday, Oct. 15, 2018, at 1:56 p.m. Jerry Hagen, District 3 coordinator of the Riverside County Emergency Management Department, states that Edison has located and repaired the cause of the power outage and estimates that power will be restored to the Idyllwild-Pine Cove-Mountain Center area no later than early this evening, Monday. Edison is not yet confirming that information itself.

The Town Crier still will be coming out on Thursday morning this week, rather than the usual Wednesday, due to the power outage.
