Some Angelenos are still feeling the effects of Sunday and Monday's windy, El Niño-powered storm: their power is still out. The LA Department of Water and Power said in a Tweet that more than 98,000 customers' have had their power turned back on since the tempest (which included winds over 100 mph), but about 3,822 users are still waiting for the lights to return. The LADWP has a helpful outage map to show where people are still affected; the numbers are updated regularly on the map as power returns. According to a release from about 6 am this morning, Exposition Park and Larchmont had the most customers still waiting for power: 1,405 and 1,424, respectively.
The map also includes a neighborhood by neighborhood breakdown, to see how many are without power and the status of repairs. So, if you live in a place where the power is still out, you can check in (on your phone or from your computer at work) and get a good idea of when you might expect to have power again.
About 5,000 Southern California Edison customers were also literally powerless this morning, KPCC reports. That agency also has a map of their outages that lets customers know where the power is off and what the status is for bringing it back online.
The one-day storm really messed LA up, with wind knocking over trees and tall things from Silver Lake to Long Beach and the San Pedro area. A survey of the madness:

I know we need the rain, but I really loved that pepper tree. #larain pic.twitter.com/GRRKePX8r6— Travis Koplow (@traviskoplow) January 31, 2016
