California is affected by strong winds that fuel fires and disrupt power supply

Outgoing winds from the offshore knocked down trees, power lines, and telephone poles throughout Southern California overnight. They also sparked brushfires in Big Sur County and Sonoma County.

Los Angeles County recorded gusts up to 89 mph at Mt. Mike Wofford, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, Oxnard, stated that Lukens can be found in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Photos shared on social media showed many fallen power lines near foothill areas such as Altadena. The toppled trees were able to smash into homes in Monrovia and Upland.

Southern California Edison reported that 92 outages had occurred, affecting 24554 customers within its service area. This was as of 10:10 a.m. The majority — about 20,298 customers — were in Los Angeles County.
