Power Outage?
updated: Mar 07, 2014, 2:42 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

My daughter just got home from GVJH and said that there was no power for the last 45 minutes of school. The power went off and then there were two loud bangs!

County Fire's Twitter feed shows this at 1:51:

Stow Canyon Rd / Barling Ter , Goleta * Single Engine Response - Defau * 34448928 - 119833763 * FSBC140002655 * E14

That address is right by the school.

wow, this is outrageous. maybe those affected could start a petition or email/letter write to the PUC. Really unacceptable on the part of Edison. I'd join in; am not motivated enough to start it. Maybe contact the woman with horses who had a fire start on her property, was it Sycamore Canyon?

Maybe it's time for a new electric untility. SCE does not maintain its equipment.

What's so outrageous about the power being out for 45 minutes? The bangs you heard were probably exploding transformers.

Exactly..outrageous? on a windy day after the only significant rain after two years? I will keep my thoughts to myself on some patience people ought to have so I don't get sent to the penalty box but in the words of Bill Murry, "Lighten up Francis".

Power was also out in San Roque area south of State St for 10 seconds this morning at 7:15.

Not a big deal unless you have a computer hard drive running...

@011, actually it was Sergeant Hulka (Warren Oates) that said, "Lighten up Francis".

Get a UPS for that computer and monitor and you'll have plenty of time to power down with no loss of data if the power stays off.

On Lincolwood the power went out for quite awhile. Strange and serious that power outages spanned so far today. Remember when a power outage spanned nearly the entire state?

If they would put in underground lines, the wind would not cause outages, fires, etc AND everyplace would look better without poles and wires.

Ever since the new meter system installation transformers have be blowing left and right. Coincidence?
