10 JUL 2018: The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power says it has restored electricity to most of the 7,000 customers who lost power Monday morning in the midst of a heat wave. Southern California has had record-breaking heat since last Friday. While temperatures were lower on Monday, some places still set records for the day.  

In Koreatown, only 113 out of 2,200 customers remained without power by late afternoon.

Camarillo Airport had a high of 92, breaking the record of 90 that was set last year.

Oxnard reached 91, one degree above the 2017 record.

The DWP says Monday's lower temperatures are expected to help prevent overloading of circuits, allowing crews to make headway in replacing damaged equipment.
