Some relief comes to long-suffering street

first_img• Photo Galleries: 07/25: Heat wave | Power outage LA MIRADA – When utility workers arrived Tuesday at Los Flores Avenue, where the electricity had been out since Saturday, residents reacted like castaways sighting a ship on the horizon. “There is a God in heaven!” exclaimed Ed Montano, who had started comparing prices on gasoline-powered generators before the Southern California Edison work crew began replacing a damaged underground transformer in the 15000 block of Los Flores. “Just seeing them helps,” said neighbor Diane Davis, who lives on Erin Street, around the corner from Montano. “Most people understand what’s going on and the hours we’re putting in,” he said. “We’ve been pulling extended shifts since Thursday and Friday.” Montano was just happy to see them. “It’s a relief just to see one of the trucks. It was a bit sketchy for a while,” he said. Joblon said that this week’s weather has been the hottest he’s experienced in his 17 years with Edison. To Edison customers still without power, he said: “Just be patient. We’ll get there.” In Whittier, Edison crews had to make two appearances before power was finally restored Tuesday on the 7600 block of Washington Avenue. Power went out Saturday. A little after midnight Tuesday, resident Sylvia Serafin heard a commotion outside and got out of bed to watch as an Edison crew began fixing a nearby transformer. “I didn’t go to bed until I saw the men leave. And I thought, `OK, now we have power,”‘ she said. Her relief lasted only about 10 hours, however. At 11 a.m., Serafin noticed that her refrigerator had again stopped running. “I checked everything and there was no light, no power,” she said. A short time later, Edison workers were back, and power came back at Serafin’s apartment building at about 1 p.m. After workers replaced the transformer, “it all came back,” said her neighbor Kendel Kaufman. “Now we’ve got everything.” Serafin said the past few days have been a misadventure. “I’m on vacation, but this hasn’t been much of a vacation,” she said. “It’s been more like a nightmare.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmatesWeary Edison crews have been working nearly around the clock repairing hundreds of transformers that failed under the strain of overwhelming demand for electrical power, said Edison spokesman Paul Klein. Officials were prioritizing customers whose power has been out for 24 hours or more. As of Tuesday afternoon, about 1,000 homes and businesses in Whittier and surrounding communities were without power, he said. “We’re hoping that all previous heat-related outages will be restored today,” Klein said. “This is the worst heat wave since 1998. Every available resource that we have is out in the field, and they’re working 16-hour shifts,” he said. On Montano’s block, a sign he put up in his front yard Monday that read “Three Days, no power. Where is Edison?” was gone Tuesday. Edison foreman John Joblon, overseeing the replacement of the underground transformer near Montano’s house, said his crew had been working pretty much nonstop. last_img
