Power outages Wednesday affected thousands of utility customers in Glendale as temperatures in the city soared toward 100 degrees.

According to Glendale Water & Power, a failure at an electrical substation at about 11 a.m. “caused multiple power outages” around the city.

Most customers had service restored by about 1:45 p.m., and by around 3:35 p.m. the rest were back online, officials said.

Another outage, this one affecting about 11,000 customers, was reported by the utility about 4:10 p.m. No estimated time of service restoration was made available.

The number of customers affected by the first outage was not immediately available, according to Eliza Papazian, the utility’s community relations coordinator.

During the outage, cooling stations were available at four community and recreation centers.

Crews were at work on restoration efforts, and in the meantime, cooling stations were available at four locations: Adult Recreation Center, 201 E. Colorado St.; Maple Park Community Center, 820 E. Maple St.; Pacific Community Center, 501 S. Pacific Ave.; and Sparr Heights Community Center, 1613 Glencoe Way.
