Amid a Southland heat wave, a power outage left about 900 Southern California Edison customers, including four schools, without power for about three hours in the Montebello area on May 13.

The outage along Edwin Aldrin Circle, Madison Avenue, Flotilla Street and Hay Avenue was reported about 11:30 a.m., according to Edison.

The outage affected Montebello High School, Montebello Intermediate School, Fremont Elementary School and Washington Elementary School, according to Michael Cobarrubias, assistant superintendent of the Montebello Unified School District.

By early afternoon, all four schools had been dismissed a little early for the day or were nearing their normal dismissal times, Cobarrubias said.

Power was restored to all customers by about 2:30 p.m., according to Edison.
