The Southern California wind and wildfire hazard can cause a power outage

Parts of the National Meteorological Service of Southern California, including the Inland Empire, were subjected to fire protection weather from Thanksgiving afternoon to Friday night.
Moderate or strong Santa Ana winds – with gusts of up to 60 km / h – and low humidity are likely at this time in the mountains and valleys of the area, the National Meteorological Service said.
“High fire risk is probably Thanksgiving and Friday … avoid actions that can # cause a brush fire !!” the Los Angeles office of the National Meteorological Service said a tweet on tuesday evening.

Edison, Southern California, says customers live in five counties that may have a power outage: Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura. Most (42,100) were in the province of San Bernardino.

The utility usually alerts you to possible power outages up to three days in advance. The purpose of such outages is to prevent the electrical system from catching fire if it overturns the infrastructure in dry conditions.

The company serves about 5 million customers.
