Power Restored to 2,000 Customers in Southeast Pasadena
Power was restored to all customers in southeast Pasadena Monday night after an outage that lasted less than two hours, officials said.
About 2,000 customers were affected by the outage, which was caused by a Mylar balloon that came into contact with power lines, said Wendy De Leon, spokeswoman for Pasadena Water & Power.
The utility had announced the outage at 7:45 p.m. on Twitter, and tweeted out updates during the incident.
PWP reminded people to properly dispose of metallic balloons. The Pasadena Fire Department urged residents to keep flashlights in working order, and to have battery operated radios for vital news.
