Update 8 PM Power is reported to be out on 18th street now according to SoCal Edison, estimated time for power to be restored is at midnight

11.3.22 A high tension wire has fallen to the ground at 18th Street and Michigan Avenue Thursday in Santa Monica. There are no reports of outages at this time.

It appears winds caused a high-voltage wire to fall onto the street, requiring for SoCal Edison to be called out to the scene. There has been no report of the power going out yet. SoCal Edison is waiting for another utility unit to arrive on scene before proceeding as they're at another scene where 2 transformers reportedly blew up in another area of the city.

Weather in the area was windy with temperatures around 60 degrees farenheit.
