Calif. utility says power back for all customers
Southern California Edison says power restored to last of customers left in dark by windstorm
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Southern California Edison says it has restored power to all customers who were blacked out by last week's ferocious windstorm.

Spokesman Scott Andresen (an-DREE'-suhn) says the lights went back on for the last few customers at 6:21 a.m. Thursday ' six days after winds gusting to nearly 100 mph tore down power lines and toppled trees. At the peak of the windstorm, nearly 434,000 customers lost power at least momentarily.

While repair crews have been working around the clock, the president of the utility apologized Wednesday to customers left in the dark.

Pasadena, which has its own utility, says fewer than 75 people remain without power. The city was hard hit by the storm and estimates the damage and cleanup costs at close to $20 million.
