A downed power line caused a power outage on Point Dume near Pacific Coast Highway and Portshead Road on Monday, March 21. 
A tree branch fell onto a power line along Portshead Road, causing the line to break and fall to the ground. 
“A tree-trimmer cut the [branch] and it came on the main wire,” said Manuel Gonzalez, test man for Southern California Edison. 
Power went out in the area and SCE officials estimated it would be out until at least 10 p.m. Monday
