Power restored at most Golden West College buildings after outage cancels morning classes

All morning classes at Golden West College were canceled Friday as the Huntington Beach campus worked to restore electricity after a schoolwide power outage.

Power to most of the buildings returned about noon, according to Janet Houlihan, Golden West’s vice president of student life and administrative services.

The college’s maintenance and operations staff and a high-voltage electrician were trying to determine the cause of the outage as they worked to restore electricity to buildings that were still dark Friday afternoon. Some classses scheduled in those buildings were relocated on campus, Houlihan said.

Students whose classes were canceled were contacted about whether those classes would be rescheduled, she said.

Houlihan said she expects all buildings to be fully functional by Monday.

The power outage was reported in a tweet on the college’s Twitter account at 7:52 a.m.

Southern California Edison said it had no report of the outage because it did not involve the company’s equipment.
