Southern California Edison has yet to restore power to 555 customers in Monrovia after a windstorm knocked out electricity to much of the city during a windstorm last week.
A total of 10,957 households and businesses in Monrovia lost power at some point, and the utility said it was working "around the clock" to restore electricity to those still without it, according to a statement released by the company Tuesday afternoon.
"We will continue to work around the clock until full restoration to all customers is completed and will apply lessons learned to future operations," SCE President Ron Litzinger said in the statement. "In all of this, safety is our primary concern and we want to remind the public to stay away from any downed and dangling power lines, including individual lines that connect customer homes to our poles."
Power has been fully restored to , according to the city.
Safety concerns remain the biggest problems for crews trying to repair power lines, according to SCE.
"Where trees have taken out lines and poles, crews may be able to reconstruct poles, but trees may also have taken down the lines between poles and homes," a SCE news release states. "SCE crews also need to repair those lines as part of the process of safely restoring power to individual customers."
