BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — More than 10,000 customers in Tehachapi and the Kern River Valley have had their power restored Thursday night, Southern California Edison officials said.

The utility said power was restored to nearly all customers in affected areas from a power safety shutoff that began Wednesday because of strong winds and fire prone weather conditions.

A Southern California Edison spokesperson said only one customer remained without power in the area.
