UPDATE: Monday, 4:15 p.m.: An Edison spokesperson confirmed that 4,148 customers were affected by Saturday night’s power outage in West Malibu, not 3,589, which was the number released by officials over the weekend.
SCE spokeswoman Maureen Brown did not know why the two numbers were different, but she was certain that 4,148 was the correct figure as of Monday afternoon.
She said one circuit failed 2,224 customers, and a second circuit failed 1,924 customers.
UPDATE: 7:20 p.m.: Southern California Edison restored power to 11 customers in West Malibu at 4 p.m. Sunday after they had been in the dark since Saturday night. Most of the 3,589 customers who lost power Saturday night had their power back on by 7 a.m. Sunday.
The outage was first reported after multiple trees fell across power lines between Bonsail Drive and Latigo Canyon Road.
The cause of the downed lines is not yet known but could be weather-related, according to SCE spokeswoman Susan Cox.
