High Winds Could Prompt SCE To Cut Power To Some Transmission Lines

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - With a red flag warning looming for Thursday and Friday, Southern California Edison said today that it could cut power to transmission lines in some areas at high risk for brush fires.

The affected areas include Malibu, the Santa Clarita Valley, Agoura Hills, Altadena, the Santa Ana foothills communities in Orange County and neighboring communities.

About 53,000 business and residential customers could have their power cut if high winds pose a risk of downing electrical transmission lines and sparking brush fires.

The utility is directly notifying customers of the possible outages.
