Power outages hit across parts of Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Scattered power outages were
reported across Los Angeles on Monday as utilities officials
scrambled to determine the cause.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department said
outages were reported in downtown Los Angeles, Koreatown and in
the San Fernando Valley. Officials said power had not been lost
at Los Angeles International Airport.

"We're in contact with the D.W.P. (Department of Water and
Power) and they are trying to figure it out," the police
spokeswoman said.
