A power line is broken on SR-192/ Foothill between Calle Laureles and Alamar, avoid the area while clean up crews in action!

most of mission canyon was out from 2:00 pm mon until 11am Tues. SCE was no help, not even posted on their outage map for 12 hours into the incident, no one knew anything @ SCE, & no call back, as promised upon restoration. 2nd full refrigerator/freezer dump in one month.

Keep the freezer 1/2 full of ice and go buy a block for the fridge if the power is out for a couple of hours. Maybe toss some veggies to make room. No reason and I'm sure you're exaggerating, for a full dump for less than a day. Been doing this for years and had cold beer for 3 days after the big quake here some 30 + years ago.

We bought a generator in the old days when we had a lot of outages. Paid for itself over time...

Drove thru last night after 9pm and they were working hard on this. Felt bad for the residentd because of all the noise and bright lights, there were MANY trucks! When are they going to put our wires underground??? It baffles me that we don't have better infrastructure here

When I lived in Samarkand over 10 years ago the estimate per household to bury the utility lines was $10,000. Per household. NOT paid for by the utility company nor the City, but by residents directly. Yeah, it was a PITA everytime the power went out when the wind blew those tall eucalyptus trees around but few of us had that kind of cash lying around. Anyway... the trees have but cut in half so the hazard from above has been minimized but the one from below persists.
