A power outage Aug. 19 affected approximately 180 Southern California Edison (SCE) customers on Ojai's East End.
The outage, reported at 11:42 a.m., struck an isolated area bordered by Del Prado Court on the north, Ojai Avenue on the south, Oriole Street on the west and Lark Allen Avenue on the east.
SCE spokesman Rudy Gonzales said all but 57 customers were back on line by 4:30 p.m.
Power was restored to all customers by 10:59 a.m. Aug. 20.
The cause of the outage was a failed underground cable at Golden West Avenue and Oriole Street, according to Gonzales.
