More than 3,600 Los Angeles residents are without power as temperatures in the city are about to hit a record high. The outage began Monday night when customers beat the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s previous mark for peak power usage. Temperatures have already risen into the triple digits throughout much of Southern California. There is increasing concern about the risk of wildfires, especially “if the fuels are really dry and hot for so many days and overnight it hasn’t cooled down,” said Dave Bruno, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Firefighters are already busy quelling wildfires in Northern California.
