Strong winds created change in pressure battered the Los Angeles area Friday, Saturday and following through to Sunday morning. Meteorologist Ari Sarsalari says these winds could be a hurricane force wind and he is reminded of the Santa Ana wind even in Southern California from 2011, which left a lot of damage behind.
Sarsalari says fire weather is a definite concern for the next few days.
"Sustained winds will be in the 25 to 40 mph range and gusts up to 80 mph remain possible through Saturday. Winds will become less widespread and weaken Saturday night but will remain strong into Sunday morning."
Power lines were brought down in the greater Los Angeles area which resulted in power outages (over 9,000). On Saturday morning, people from 24 apartments were evacuated after a tree fell on a gas line in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
