Southern California Edison says more than 27,000 of its customers were without power Tuesday morning, mainly in Orange and Los Angeles counties. Most have been blacked out for eight to 16 hours as temps hit 113 degrees in some parts. Los Angeles Department of Water and Power reports another 15,000 customers are without power in Los Angeles. That figure, recorded just after noon Monday, was the hottest registered in the city since record-keeping began in 1877. The previous high of 112 was set on June 26, 1990. Sending prayers for all effected by the heat and blackout. Take care and be safe!!
