California recovering from last week's ferocious windstorm but new winds are on the way
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) ' Southern California is recovering from last week's ferocious windstorm but new gusts are on the way.
The National Weather Service has issued high wind warnings through Tuesday afternoon for gusts of up to 60 mph below mountain passes and in canyons. Some coastal and inland desert areas could see 50-mph gusts.
There also are red flag warnings in some areas because of high fire danger from gusty, dry weather.
However, the winds won't be as strong as last week, when gusts of nearly 100 mph were recorded. Those winds toppled power lines and trees and fanned small fires.
Some 300,000 people lost power. Some remain blacked out but Southern California Edison says most will have it back Monday.
