TEHACHAPI, Calif. — Southern California Edison notified the Stallion Springs Community Services District that the current outage impacting thousands of customers is not due to a Public Safety Power Shutoff but from another source, according to the district.

According to the Southern California Edison website, 4,455 customers in Bear Valley Springs are without power.

Edison reported that the outage happened Friday around 4:30 p.m. It originally estimated restoration by Friday evening, but power won't be restored until 2 a.m. Saturday.

SCE technicians have responded to the scene. The source of the outage has not been determined at this time.

The Stallion Spring Services District said it activated the Emergency Operation Center at the district building off 27800 Stallion Springs Drive. It will provide a warming center and a place for those with critical life-sustaining equipment and other residents impacted by the outage.

Officials said that they do not have medical personnel to assist with life-sustaining equipment and cannot provide any transportation to the facility. There are sleeping cots and people will be able to charge devices.
