High Winds Put Edison, Residents On Alert

windytreeHigh winds have prompted the National Weather Service to issue another Hazardous Weather Outlook for the next 48 hours.

A high wind warning is in effect until 3 p.m. Saturday, as strong north to northeast winds will continue to develop through passes and canyons and continue throughout the day.  Wind speeds are expected to range from 25 to 40 MPH, with gusts to 60 MPH.

Wind may knock down trees and power lines and cause unsecured objects to be blown around. Items that could become airborne, such as patio furniture, should be brought indoors or secured.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low-to-mid 60s during the day Friday and Saturday, with winds gusting between 35 to 50 MPH. Friday night, winds are supposed to pick up with gusts as high as 55 MPH and temperatures in the low 40s. Saturday’s weather is expected to be sunny and very windy.

With high winds forecast through Saturday, Southern California Edison is reminding customers that outages may occur and to never approach or touch downed power lines.
Even if downed or dangling wires do not appear to be live, it should be avoided and 911 called immediately.

Southern California Edison will provide the latest information about outages at and on Twitter at @SoCalEdison

Customer safety is a top priority for SCE. Here are important tips to keep in mind:

  • Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.
  • Make sure you have a battery-operated radio and flashlights. Check the batteries to make sure they are fresh. Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage; do not use candles because they may pose a significant fire hazard.
  • Do not use any equipment inside that is designed for outdoor heating or outdoor cooking. Such equipment can emit carbon monoxide and other toxic gases.
  • If you use a generator, place it outdoors and plug individual appliances directly into the generator, using a heavy-duty extension cord. Connecting generators directly to household circuits creates “backfeed,” which is dangerous to repair crews.
  • Leave the doors of your refrigerator and freezer closed to keep your food as fresh as possible. Place blocks of ice inside to help keep food cold. Check food carefully for signs of spoilage.
  • Check on your neighbors to make sure everyone is safe.
