LOS ANGELES (AP) — Thousands of residents have been affected by a power outage in the mountain communities northeast of Los Angeles after a snowstorm walloped the area.

KABC-7 reports Sunday that nearly 9,000 Southern California Edison customers lacked electricity on Sunday in and around Lake Arrowhead.

Crews say the power might not be restored before Monday due to area road closures.

Officials are providing firewood to residents to help them keep warm.

The mountain communities 62 miles (100 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles were hit by a powerful snowstorm last week.
