Now more than 280 customers are without power due to equipment failues, after SoCal Edison officials had that figure down to about 40.

Further equipment failures developed while technicians were trying to fix the remaining outages, which were located off of White Canyon Road, near Nadal Street.

The Southern Californa Edison equipment failure that occurred Sunday night initially left more than 1,100 customers without power Monday, according to utility officials.

“There was a bad run of cable, so they have to replace the cable and they’re having a difficult time,” according to Anna Frutos-Sanchez, spokeswoman for Southern California Edison. The outages are located on Nadal Street, near Whites Canyon Road, she said.

Technicians plan to have power restored by 6 p.m., she said. 

Approximately 1,148 customers were initially left without power after unscheduled outages were reported in Canyon Country, according to officials with Southern California Edison.

“We have a report of a line down, and some of our equipment failed on White Canyon Road near Pleasantdale and Bakerton,” Frutos Sanchez said Sunday.
