More Than 2,500 Customers Without Power in Monrovia, Duarte

The signal at Myrtle Avenue near the 210 Freeway is out and nearby homes are experiencing power outages.

UPDATE: All power was restored to customers as of 5 p.m. Monday, an Edison spokewoman told Patch.


A power outage Monday afternoon left more than 2,500 customers in Monrovia and Duarte without power, a Southern California Edison spokeswoman said.

The outage began shortly after 2 p.m. when two circuits went down, Edison spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez Casanova said.

The signal at Myrtle Avenue near the 210 freeway lost power and a live wire was reported on Mountain Avenue, according to police scanner reports.

Rodriguez Casanova did not know when power would be restored.

"They're actually still trouble shooting it right now," she said shortly before 4 p.m.

The outage map on Southern California Edison's website lists two outages in Duarte affecting a total of more than 150 customers. The map does not list any outages in Monrovia.

Edison lists "equipment failure" and "equipment problems" as the causes of the Duarte outages.

"We are in the process of completing repairs," its website reads.

Patch will update this story when more information is available.

We're in Monrovia and our power flickered enough to turn the computer, radio, and clock on the microwave off. The rest of the clocks were fine.

Power went off up here in foothills just long enough to knock out fans, lights and computer, etc., but came back on after a minute....

Went our twice here in Duarte just long enough to knock out the clocks, tvs and computer. Glad Edison spent millions of dollars to improve our service. Funny how we had no problems during the time the temps were well over 100.

Thanks to Edison, I can now reset my answering machine without having to read the instructions. Our lights flickered about an hour before the electricity went off for a minute. Along with the randomness of electric service, if the water pressure would drop to 0 for a few hours every day, I could pretend I'm back in the Peace Corps:-)

Seriously? You guys are whining because your clocks reset? Randomness of electric service? You guys are a bunch of spoiled idiots.
