A local congressman held a panel discussion Thursday to find out why relief efforts took so long following the November windstorms.

The windstorms knocked out power for more than 340,000 residents and caused millions of dollars in damage to cities in the San Gabriel Valley, namely in the city of Pasadena.  Congressman Adam Schiff held the panel with local government officials and public utilities like Southern California Edison to get some answers about the response time and lack of communication with the public.
