Thousands of SCE customers without power in mountain communities around Arrowhead

Thousands of Southern California Edison customers in several mountain communities surrounding Arrowhead remained without power Sunday, days after a powerful snow storm hit the area.

In the Arrowhead area, about 4,200 customers were without power as of Sunday evening, according to SoCal Edison. The affected areas include the communities of Twin Peaks, Green Valley Lake, Crestline, Running Springs and Lake Arrowhead. Crews were having difficulty restoring power due to road closures and said many of the outages would not be resolved before Monday.

The rest of the outages were in the Mount Baldy area. Across Southern California, approximately 7,000 customers were without power.

The utility was working with the county to provide firewood to residents to help them stay warm during the outage. Firewood will be available at the following locations:

  • Twin Peaks Fire Station


  • Green Valley Lake Fire Station

  • Crestline Chamber of Commerce

  • Arrowhead Fire Station


  • In Running Springs, vehicles and yards were buried under fresh powder.

    But with road conditions improving, many said they are starting to leave their homes after being stuck inside.
