Shaver Lake Residents without Power until Monday

Friday, January 22, 2010

Hundreds of Shaver Lake residents are preparing to spend the weekend without power. Southern California Edison and PG&E crews have been driving around in snow cabs to reach areas they can't get to on foot.

The CHP said drivers must have snow chains or a four-wheel drive vehicle to reach higher elevations.

Businesses have been surviving -- but barely. Many are accepting cash or check for necessary items. But until the power returns, sales will continue to fall.

An Edison representative said the power should start returning to some residents Friday night. But some people have been warned -- they could be without electricity until Monday.
