Street closed for hours after storm knocks down power lines
LA MESA, Calif. — A stretch of Lake Murray Boulevard was reopened Tuesday morning and power restored to La Mesa utility customers after an El Nino-driven Pacific storm downed power lines in the area.
A SigAlert was issued after the storm sent downed power lines across Lake Murray Boulevard Monday night. The roadway was initially expected to be closed from Kiowa and Parkway drives until about 10 a.m., but it was reopened shortly after 6 a.m., according to La Mesa city officials.
Power was also knocked out to 28 area homes and businesses, but electrical service has since been restored, according to San Diego Gas & Electric.
