Power restored to customers in Panorama City

PANORAMA CITY, Calif. Some 3,800 customers lost power shortly before 11 p.m. Monday when a vehicle sheared a fire hydrant at Saticoy Street and Ventura Canyon Avenue, sending water jetting into power lines.

The outage disabled traffic lights, resulting in another traffic crash at Roscoe Boulevard and Woodman Avenue shortly before 1 a.m.

The Department of Water and Power was able to restore electricity at about 4 a.m., about five hours after the power was knocked out.
