Many in Calif. Still Without Power after Windstorm

Ad Feedback

Anger and frustration toward California's utility companies is on the rise as thousands of residents are still without power following last week's windstorm.

Crews have been working around the clock to bring the lights back after the powerful windstorm knocked out electricity across much of southern California, Nov. 30.

"The debris is hampering our ability to get things done," explained Marvin Jackmon, spokesman for Southern California Edison.

Some customers, however, are unsympathetic.

"If you have to wake up in the middle of the night to go check on the dog or to make sure everything is ok, its pitch black.  If you can't find the flashlight for a second, it's annoying," disgruntled resident Hason Hamlin said.

In Pasadena, police arrested a 72-year-old man who made death threats against city workers for failing to restore his power.
Some 6,500 people in the region are still without electricity.
