Gusts of wind reached 54 miles per hour yesterday, knocking over trees and shutting down power across SoCal, reports KTLA. The highest winds appeared to be in the Angeles National Forest, with areas in San Diego and Santa Barbara also feeling it in the 30-mile-an-hour range. A wind advisory is in effect until this afternoon, notes KTLA.

LA Now adds that a small fire broke out in Whittier following the downing of a power line, and that 31,900 customers lost power at some point during the day yesterday, throughout the Valley, Inland Empire and Santa Barbara, among other communities.
