More than 2,300 Southern California Edison customers lost power Wednesday in central Malibu.
The outage was reported at 11:19 a.m. and stretched from Latigo Canyon Road to Rambla Pacifico along Pacific Coast Highway, according to Paul Klein, a spokesman for Edison.
At 11:45 a.m., the signal at Pacific Coast Highway and Webb Way was out, and traffic was backed up.
The power was mostly restored to the Civic Center area by 12:30 p.m., according to the City's of Malibu Emergency Services. Power also went out on the Pepperdine campus, but it was restored at 12:37 p.m., Professor Courtenay Stallings wrote on Malibu Patch's Facebook Page.
Some shoppers reported the power went out at the CVS Pharmacy in Malibu.
The outage was caused by faulty equipment near Pacific Coast Highway and John Tyler Drive in front of Pepperdine University, said Susan Cox, an Edison spokeswoman.
As of 3:45 p.m., 114 customers remained without power, according to Cox, who did not provide an estimated restoration time.
A separate outage impacted 151 customers earlier at 2:52 a.m. Wednesday along Malibu Canyon Road. That outage was caused when a vehicle hit a transmission pole.
Crews are still working on repairing the downed pole on Malibu Canyon and expect to be finished by 3:30 p.m. Traffic is still down to one lane on Malibu Canyon Road, according to the City of Malibu.
