UPDATED: Services are expected to be restored by 1 a.m. Saturday.

As a storm continues to hit Los Angeles, some Bel-Air residents are without power.

About 170 customers are affected in Bel-Air, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The DWP says rainfall caused the outages, and it expects power to be restored around 1 a.m. Saturday. At 5 p.m., nearly 10,000 Los Angeles County residents were without power, but most of those problems have been fixed.

Also without power: the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style event at  Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. However a rep for the event says it had an emergency generator on hand to provide some light, making the event intimate.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Tujunga, Sunland, Lake View Terrace, La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge, Burbank and Beverly Hills. The warning is in effect until 8:45 p.m.

People in those areas are advised to seek higher ground.
