Power mostly back after outage knocks it out to more than 4,000 customers in Laguna Beach

A power outage that at one point knocked out more than 4,000 customers in Laguna Beach was still affecting 65 by 1:30 p.m. Saturday, with no estimate on when it might be restored, authorities said.

The outage was first reported around 8:30 a.m. and was caused by failed equipment, Southern California Edison spokeswoman Taelor Bakewell said. In all, 4,256 customers lost power initially.

City officials put out a notice of the outage, warning residents and visitors that city lights may be affected.

The outage comes almost a month after a similar outage also knocked out power to more than 4,000 customers due to failed equipment. Power was restored to most customers within three hours.
