Many of the outages appear to be on the Westside (my house included). The wires are quoting a DWP spokeswoman as saying that the outages could last anywhere from eight to 10 hours (though I wouldn't hold anyone to that). Lots of fallen trees, downed live wires - the usual for this kind of wind storm. Venice, Northridge, west Los Angeles, Westwood, Westchester, Chatsworth, Palms, Silver Lake and San Pedro are among the areas hit. KNBC
*Update: LAT reports that about 27,000 L.A. residences and businesses were without power this morning. Sounds like this might take a while. Curiously, there's nothing at all on the DWP Web site about the progress of getting power restored.
