Windy Conditions Continue, Advisory In Effect Through 2PM
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Dry and windy conditions continue Thursday as a Wind Advisory remains in effect through the afternoon for a significant part of the Southland.
The advisory remains in effect through 2 p.m. and covers much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, the National Weather Service said.
In Orange County, the advisory was scheduled to expire at 10 p.m.
Wind speeds are expected to reach between 15 and 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.
The strongest winds will be over the Ventura County coastal plain and along the Malibu coast between County Line and Pacific Palisades, according to the NWS.
Officials warn residents to be aware of the potential for trees to be blown down due to the saturated ground from recent rains.
KNX 1070′s Jon Baird reports residents in Burbank experienced scattered outages after a tree fell in the 1100 block of North Reese Place early Thursday.
Elaine Thomas, who has lived in the same house for 50 years, said she didn’t hear a thing even as it happened in her own front yard.
“My neighbor said there were sirens….we slept through it,” said Thomas.
Highs are expected to reach the 60s for much of the Los Angeles area Thursday.
