Strong Winds Leave Thousands without Power in Southern California

Thousands remained without power in Southern California after strong winds toppled several trees and damaged power lines across the region. Los Angeles Department of Water and Power informed that 6,000 customers were without power and staff members were working hard to restore power. While crew members were working round the clock, the authorities couldn’t provide an estimated time for restoration of power in the region.

Outages were mostly caused by fallen trees and power lines that suffered due to strong winds.

As per weather department forecast, most of the region could get relief from strong winds by late Tuesday morning. Weather reports had warned in advance about strong winds in the region.

“Currently, we have a High Wind Advisory in effect for the L.A. county and Ventura county mountains right now, as well as the Antelope valley,” NWS meteorologist Tom Fischer said.

Many people in the region also reported damage to their houses and other property.
