About 255 Southern California Edison customers remained without power Wednesday, mostly due to high winds Tuesday night.

Those affected were in the San Gabriel Valley and a portion of Los Angeles covered by Edison, according to Edison spokesman Paul Klein.

Of the 255, he said 143 were in the Valley, specifically in Arcadia, Alhambra and Altadena.

Klein said not all of the outages were due to the weather. Some were due to other situations like equipment failure and a car hitting a pole, he added.

Crews worked to restore power. They were helped by diminishing winds and clear skies Wednesday. Today's weather forecast called for sunny, clear skies, a high of 70, and winds between 5 mph and 10 mph.

The outages were caused by a combination of high winds and loose debris, according to Southern California Edison officials.

A total of 50,000 customers were affected between 2 p.m. Tuesday and 11 a.m. Wednesday in the San Gabriel Valley.

The communities that saw outages included West Covina, Sierra Madre, Baldwin Park, Monrovia, Altadena, and Arcadia.

Other cities such as La Cañada Flintridge and Montebello experienced temporary power outages for a few seconds to minutes around 3 p.m. Tuesday.

"Some customers experienced flickering lights while others are experiencing longer outages," said Nancy Rodriguez Casanova, SCE spokesperson.

In Sierra Madre, 657 customers lost electricity on Tuesday night.

"We had some major lines go down at the height of the windstorm," Sierra Madre Police Sgt. Joe Ortiz said.

He said about 25 to 35 percent of the homes had service restored by early Wednesday morning.
