Urgh, that can't be fun in a huge city such as that one. Yes, hopefully it's nothing serious.

"We are trying to get a handle on it," spokeswoman Kim Hughes said, adding that heat was not thought to be a factor on a relatively cool September afternoon. "We think it's a transmission problem."

Outages were reported across downtown Los Angeles, Koreatown, North Hollywood, Burbank and in the San Fernando Valley. Officials said power had not been lost at Los Angeles International Airport.

Television stations showed scenes of confusion unfolding at major traffic intersections as motorists tried to navigate through stoplights that were no longer working. Traffic from the area's freeways was reported to be jammed as stoplight outages caused backups onto the freeway exit ramps.

In the financial district of downtown Los Angeles office workers huddled in groups outside their buildings.

Many workers were stranded outside their buildings, which occurred during lunch and stalled elevators in the high-rise district.

A spokesman for the California Independent System Operator, which manages most of the state's power grid, said the outage in Los Angeles appeared to involve transmission lines within the control area operated by the city's Department of Water and Power, a big municipal utility.
