About 1,756 Southern California Edison customers in Manhattan Beach remain without power, said SCE spokesman Robert Villages around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The cause of the unplanned outage, which began around 9:03 a.m. and affected 2,308 customers, is not yet known, he said, and SCE is "troubleshooting" the situation to determine how to remedy the outage and to provide an estimated power restoration time for customers.

Villegas hoped to have a restoration time in a couple of hours.

The outage extends from Park View Avenue on the north to Manhattan Beach Boulevard on the south to North Grand View Avenue on the west and North Redondo Avenue on the east, he said.

I heard, and felt, two loud explosions at the time the power went out. The force was strong enough to shake the pavement and set off several car alarms. The source seemed to be underground, in the vicinity of the Verizon building on MBB and Pine Ave.
