Wild Winds Expected To Whip Around The Southland
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Wild winds are expected to whip around the Southland for the next several days.
Santa Clarita, Kern County, the Grapevine, the Antelope Valley and the Los Angeles mountains are reportedly going to be hardest hit.
High winds are also expected to impact Santa Barbara and Ventura counties as well as the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains.
The National Weather Service said many areas will get winds from 60-80 mph. CBS2 Meteorologist Rich Fields says some areas might experience winds in the triple-digits.
Officials from Southern California Edison (SCE) are taking opportunity of the wind advisory announcement to remind customers not to approach a downed power line.
“If you see a downed line or dangling wire — even if it appears not to be live — don’t touch or approach it or anything that is in contact with it and call 911 immediately,” says SCE.
The company will update customers about possible outages at www.SCE.com on Facebook and Twitter, and via their mobile “SCE Outages” app, available online at www.SCE.com/outages. Customers can report any unplanned outages at 1-800-655-4555.
