According to NBC Los Angeles and msnbc.com staff:
A small army of 100 workers planned to work around the clock this weekend to restore power, Maychelle Yee, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power told City News Service.
"At this time, the current estimated duration of power outages is 24 to 48 hours from the start of an outage," Yee said. "However, a very small percentage of our customers may experience outages lasting more than 48 hours. For these customers, we ask for your patience as crews continue to work to restore your power."
Also, many parks and buildings remain closed amid concerns of what the red flag warning would bring. A red flag warning for much of the area will take effect at 6 a.m. and last until 2 p.m. Sunday.
"The potential exists for another round of gusty northeast winds this afternoon into Sunday over Los Angeles and Ventura counties, with very low humidities,'' according to a National Weather Service advisory.
