UPDATE--3:49 p.m.:LADWP crews managed to restore power to the 1,600 Valley Village customers at 2:45 p.m., according to LA Councilman Paul Krekorian's office.
A power outage struck about 1,600 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers Thursday morning in Valley Village, says spokesperson Carol Tucker.
The outage was reported at 7:57 a.m. and its cause has yet to be determined, she said.
The source of the problem is in the 12000 block of Hesby St., said Jeremy Oberstein, communications director for LA City Councilman Paul Krekorian.
Tucker said LADWP crews are at the scene, but does not know when power would be returned.
She said she did not have the boundaries for those affected by the outage at press time.
One Patch reader and Valley Village resident said in an email that homes near Magnolia Boulevard and Colfax Avenue were without power.
