Commerce Hit by Multiple Power Outages

By EGP News

A downed power line prompted an electrical outage in the city of Commerce Wednesday morning, impacting as many as 2,700 Southern California Edison (SCE) customers, the city said in a news alert.

Power was out for several hours in areas around Bristow and Bandini parks and the Atlantic Library, the city reported. Residents and businesses in the area of Quigley and Harbor streets were also without power.

SCE confirmed the outages were related and caused by a downed power line on Triggs Street in front of Bristow Park, according to the city, which said the area surrounding the damaged power line forced the area to be cordoned off as SCE worked to repair the damage.

Service was returned to all customers before noon, the city said.
