In response the last night’s power failure, Fred Karlsen, President of SSMHOA sent the following email to the Department of Water and Power this morning:
We in the Silver Strand suffered another blackout last night, the second in this new year. At 3:06 am, we lost all power. Again, most homeowners were awakened in the dead of night by chirping and beeping of security and smoke alarms.
Power was not restored until approximately 7:25 am, meaning that the area had no power for more than four hours. Homeowners with early responsibilities were required to manually open heavy garage doors. Our elderly owners who are dependent upon elevators were confined. The outage turned off computers, loosing unsaved data.
This situation cannot continue.
I look forward to hearing from you, and a meaningful explanation and discussion at our Monday meeting.
Fred Karlsen, President
