Power lines fall on top of Moreno Valley homes
MORENO VALLEY, Calif. (KABC) -- Residents in Moreno Valley were told to shelter in place after several power lines fell on top of homes along Patricia and Filaree avenues on Tuesday.
The lines came down about 3:30 p.m. No injuries were reported.
Southern California Edison responded to the 25200 block of Filaree Avenue and shut the power off from Kitching Street to Filaree Street and Perris Boulevard to Gentrian Avenue, officials said.
A SoCal Edison spokesman said 2,500 customers were without power due to the downed power lines. By 6 p.m., about 200 homes were still without power. Officials said they hoped to have power back to the remaining customers by early morning.
Edison suspects the cause of the downed lines may have been a helium-filled foil balloon that started the chain reaction.
