California has power to millions restored on Friday, and flights start getting back to normal at San Diego Airport, seen above.

A massive blackout occurred in Southern California that spread south into Mexico, and left people in east Arizona in the dark too on Thursday night.

San Diego Gas and Electric supplies the power to most of the region, and it is presently investigating what caused the blackout, although they have said that a transmission failure in western Arizona caused a loss of power in the area it services in San Diego and southern Orange County, and also a major power generating station had also gone off line..

Although power is back, the utility is investigating to ensure this issue is not repeated, but they have asked residents to conserve power as much as possible to ease the load.

There were 1.4 million customers reported to be without power at the height of the power loss, but over a million were said to be without power in the Mexican state of Baja California.

Temperatures which have been high over the last few days are expected to begin cooling on Friday.

Flights to and from San Diego were affected during the power outage, but are reported to be back on schedule on Friday. However, airport officials are recommending that passengers check in with their airlines by phone or online before they depart to the airport in case of schedule changes. Should a flight be cancelled, then it is possible to rebook without having to head to the airport.
