Strong Winds Leave Hundreds of Phelan Residents Without Power

PHELAN:(VVNG.com)- Approximately 300 Phelan residents were left without power early Tuesday morning. The cause of the outage was due to power lines arcing and high winds making them touch in the area of Sheep Creek and Duncan Roads. According to a technician at the scene, Southern California Edison turned off the power in order to allow for repairs.

Although, most of the 295 residents impacted are with power once again. Power is expected to be fully restored by 11:30 A.M.

The U.S. National Weather Service has issued a high wind advisory for the Victor Valley until Wednesday at 10:00 A.M. Winds are expected to be between 25 to 35 mph with isolated wind gusts from 55 to 75 mph.

A WIND ADVISORY MEANS THAT WINDS OF 35 MPH ARE EXPECTED. WINDS THIS STRONG CAN MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT…ESPECIALLY FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. USE EXTRA CAUTION.
