Heavy Winds Leave 2,100 Without Power in Malibu

Wind Advisory

Powerful overnight winds left many in Malibu without power on Wednesday morning, as Southern California Edison crews worked to repair several outages across town, including 2,151 customers without power in the Point Dume area.

“We had several trees hit power lines, and traffic signals were out,” Deputy Jones with the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff station said. “Most of the west side of Malibu was affected.” 
“Southern California Edison is out there and they were working on it. They couldn’t give us an estimate.”
As of 2:30 p.m., the Southern California Edison outage map lists power poles and lines down near Point Dume and also on Cross Creek Road, affecting less than 100 residents.
The map also lists an estimated time of repair around 6 a.m. on January 1. 

Around 8:15 a.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported the following:

-The light at the intersection of Heathercliff Road and Pacific Coast Highway was out in all directions

-A tree was blocking lanes on Fernhill/Greyfox

-Wires were down at Ocean View Drive and Latigo Canyon Road (4238 Ocean View Dr.)

-Power lines were down and out in the Sycamore Meadows Drive cul-de-sac (6351 Sycamore Meadows Dr.)

-Residents of Serra Retreat also reported their power being out, though Edison has yet to post information on such an outage.

An SCE outage map listed at least 2,151 customers impacted by outages in Malibu. There is no estimate for when power will be restored.
