A power outage was reported at 9:48 a.m. near Valencia Boulevard and McBean Parkway and impacted more than 2,000 people on what may be the hottest day of the year so far, according to the Southern California Edison website.

“I can confidently say this is the warmest (day) so far this year,” said Ryan Kittell, a weather forecaster with the National Weather Service.

“It originally impacted 2,719 customers,” said Susan Cox, a spokesperson with Southern California Edison.

According to Cox, around 10:30 a.m., power was restored to a majority of customers and only 131 customers remained impacted by the outage as of 12:45 p.m.
