Southern California Edison reports that the power outages that plagued the City of Lynwood are over and that service has been restored.
As you know, Edison is responsible for delivering electricity to our homes, and the record-breaking heat of last weekend caused power outages in a number of areas that Edison serves, including the city of Lynwood.
Over 1,000 households in Lynwood lost power for some or part of the last several days.
Customers can report or inquire about outages at 800-611-1911 and get the latest information at sce.com/outages.

“I’m planning to ask the City Council to request an after-action report from Edison,” said Jose Ometeotl, Lynwood City Manager. “We need to better understand why these outages often hit our city and assess whether there’s more that Edison can be doing to mitigate or even prevent these events in the future. We would also like to see Edison prioritize repairs in lower socioeconomic areas that house most of our essential workers.”
The heat wave peaked on Sunday when temperatures reached a record 111 degrees in Lynwood, which is 27 degrees above normal for September 6th.
