Power Outages Darken Glendora Homes, Businesses

Residents and businesses were still without power Monday night after two separate outages throughout town have left many in pitch blackness.

There are more than 1,400 customers without power all over town.

The most recent outage began at 7:49 p.m., leaving about 1,400 customers without electricity, according to Lois Pitter-Bruce from Southern California Edison.

The outage stretched from the Interstate 210 freeway on the south, Carroll Avenue on the north, North Citrus Avenue on the west and South Grand Avenue on the east. Crews are still assessing the reason for that outage, Pitter-Bruce said.

An earlier outage, which was reported at 4:41 p.m., affected 49 customers all along Lawford Street. Palm fronds caught in power lines was the reported cause, Pitter-Bruce said.

GCN followers on Facebook reported outages and brief issues at Sunflower Avenue and Arrow Highway, Forestdale Avenue and Heber Street, Bennet and Grand avenues and Route 66 and Hunters Trail to name a few.

Resident Angela Edens reported live wires down in the 400 block of Valley Center Avenue, where fire fighters worked to douse the flames of an ignited tree, possibly where the outage occurred.

Crews do not have a timetable for power restoration for either outage, Pitter-Bruce said.
