Pasadena Area Rapid Transit System (ARTS) buses aren't running this morning after the area was hit hard with damage from winds last night.

Streets in Pasadena are littered with fallen trees and downed power lines, and some areas are facing damage from structure fires.

"A lot of streets are just impassable right now," said Ann Erdman, a public information officer for the city, citing the reason for the temporary shutdown of bus routes.

Clean-up crews have been out all night and are still working to clear streets this morning, says Erdman. They hope to have the buses running by this afternoon, but it remains to be seen whether or not that will be possible, given the amount of damage and the ongoing winds.
