High wind downed a power line on Rose Drive just north of Wabash Avenue in Yorba Linda on Tuesday morning, causing a power outage in surrounding neighborhoods like the Lake Park community.

The power line was leaning out at about a 45-degree angle out into the street, which was closed down, Tuesday morning.

According to Yorba Linda resident Gene Palmer, who lives in a surrounding neighborhood, his house lost power around 8 a.m.

Palmer said that particular stretch of the power line, which is just south of Carbon Canyon, has been leaning for a while and has worsened since last month’s earthquake.

Electricians from Southern California Edison were assessing the damage Tuesday morning.
