Electricity was restored in the South Bay on Sunday afternoon after several downed power lines caused a widespread outage that left more than 115,000 customers in the dark for hours.

By 2 p.m., only three homes in Torrance were still without power, said Southern California Edison spokesman David Song.

The massive outage occurred at 7 a.m. when the downed power lines knocked out a Southern California Edison substation in Torrance, causing a large swath of the South Bay to lose power.


Power went out in Torrance, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, south Redondo Beach, northwest San Pedro and Lomita. But Torrance was hardest hit, with more than 83,000 affected by the outage.
