About 7,300 customers of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power are still without power following overnight rain and winds throughout the region.

Joe Ramallo, a spokesman for the DWP, said that number was down from about 13,000 early Thursday morning. 

"It is common for rain and wind storms, particularly the first significant storm of the season, to cause some temporary power outages as dried palm fronds, tree branches and other debris fall and make contact with power lines," according to a DWP news release.

Ramallo said Thursday afternoon that the areas with the largest number of outages were El Sereno and Windsor Square. 

"Currently, crews are working around the clock as quickly and safely as possible to restore power," the DWP said.
