Abstract : During 1975, an ice storm in the Tejon Ranch Summit area caused damage to Southern California Edison Company's 500 kV and 220 kV lines. This area is located about 45.1 Km (28 miles) north of the Anaverde Summit area. The design for the 500 kV line through the Tejon Ranch Summit area was based on soft rime ice and wind loads that were predicted by a meteorological consultant, Meteorology Research, Inc. (MRI) in 1971.
