Um, is it August? These Santa Ana winds are so pervasive this year–right now it feels like the height of summer, not the depths of winter. Many other areas of the nation, like Alabama, are facing extreme weather right now, and Washington State was just ravaged with winter storms that brought most of the state to a standstill. But, they’re still standing, unlike the towns in Alabama destroyed by this week’s tornadoes. [Read more…]
Southern California Edison has done it again—the power is out for customers in the Southland. Thankfully, it’s not as many as in November when the winds destroyed power lines, or when San Diego Gas and Electric had that major shutdown in September, but over 1,400 customers are without power in Corona.
The power went out just before 3 a.m. this morning, and SCE is blaming it on equipment problems, not the wind—although it is blowing today in the Inland Empire. Or should we call it the “Windland Empire”? The Santa Anas are being very generous during this holiday season, and although all of us are appreciating the sunny, warm weather, windstorms are becoming a little frequent. [Read more…]
As if two windstorms this winter hadn’t created enough mayhem and destruction, there’s a new one about to hit the desert early tomorrow morning.
Starting at 4 a.m. Thursday morning and lasting up until 1 p.m. Friday, the National Weather Service’s warning is in effect for the Coachella Valley and the Palm Springs area. They have not said if this is another “inside slider”, like the two previous storm, but the winds will be coming from the north and northeast. [Read more…]
Yes, the winter windstorms in Orange County, Los Angeles and the Inland Empire have not finished with us yet. The National Weather Service reports that another “inside slider” is going to move into the region tomorrow and Friday. [Read more…]
If you are expecting the winds to have left the Southland, you’ll be disappointed. Residents in some areas are still waiting for power to be restored, and many areas will have to be patient while waiting for the winds to die down.
The National Weather Service issued a red-flag warning today for the mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties that lasts through Tuesday afternoon. The northeast winds are expected to reach 40 mph with the possibility of gusts up to 60 mph. [Read more…]
The “inside slider”, as the National Weather Service calls it, weather pattern could hit twice more this weekend, apparently, and even continue into early next week. It’s not completely unusual, says Weather Service meteorologist Miguel Miller, but three inside sliders in five days is a little out of the ordinary.
Gusts reached almost 100 miles an hour over the past two days in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, with coastal Orange County managing to dodge the strongest winds. A state of emergency was called in a few cities in Los Angeles, including Pasadena, where large trees and downed power lines made it dangerous for residents—all of the schools were closed on Thursday. Out of the 370,000 Southern California residents that were out of power yesterday, 140,000 remain without electricity.
With downed power lines down all over the southland, firefighters were called out constantly yesterday to put out fires and make areas safe for residents. States of emergency were declared in Alhambra, South Pasadena, Pasadena, San Marino, San Gabriel, Temple City, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Glendora and Arcadia.
