Blast Temporarily Cuts Power to 15,000

November 15, 1999

More than 15,000 Department of Water and Power customers on the Westside were temporarily without power Sunday after a small explosion at a power facility, a DWP spokeswoman said.

The explosion, caused by an equipment failure at a transfer station near the corner of Sepulveda Boulevard and Nebraska Avenue, sparked the outage about 11 a.m., said DWP spokeswoman Winifred Yancy.

No one was hurt in the explosion. Power was restored to all DWP customers by 2 p.m., she said.
