Crews from Southern California Edison worked Monday in San Gabriel to repair equipment that caused an outage that, at one point, affected about 3,600 customers, officials said.
The outage was reported about 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Edison spokeswoman Mary Ann Milbourn said. It first affected about 3,000 customers, then re-routing increased the outage to 3,600 and it was reduced as low as 1,900 customers before going back to 2,978 Monday, she said.
The cause was equipment problems, according to the utility’s web site. The estimated time for restoration was shifted from 1 p.m. to 3:30 Monday afternoon.
The outage area is bounded by Worthington Drive on the north, Acacia Avenue on the south, Encinita Avenue on the east and San Marino Avenue on the west, Milbourn said.
