Power outage in LA

A major power outage has hit Los Angeles, which will no doubt affect internet traffic and many websites. Says the San Francisco Chronicle :
Outages were reported from downtown to the coast and north into the San Fernando Valley. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power did not immediately have an explanation for what happened.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department said the Department of Water of Power was investigating the source of the outage. Terrorism was not suspected, according to Sgt. Catherine Plows, though the department went on "full tactical alert," meaning no officers were allowed to leave duty...
Bloomberg reports:
Edison International's Southern California Edison, which provides power to areas not covered by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, said none of its customers were affected.

``At least the areas we serve are fine,'' said Susan Heard, a spokeswoman for Southern California Edison.
