LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Thousands of Southland residents are suffering power outages Saturday as a historic winter storm pummels the area, and some customers might not have their electricity restored until Sunday, utility officials said.

Both the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and Southern California Edison were reporting multiple large outages that began Friday. DWP outages Saturday included one in Hollywood affecting more than 1,600 customers, and one in Los Feliz affecting over 1,000 customers, along with smaller scattered outages across Los Angeles County.

SCE's outage map showed 45 outages affecting more than 11,000 customers in Los Angeles County as of 9 a.m. Saturday, and 10 outages in Orange County affecting 615 customers.

"Under current conditions, customers experiencing outages should expect crews to respond between 12-24 hours from the time the outages are reported," the LADWP tweeted at 9:44 p.m. Friday. "Restoration may take longer depending on field conditions. TY for your understanding. Our crew won't stop until all are restored."
