Someone please offer a sacrifice to the Los Angeles weather gods—they are not happy. Last night, 70 mph winds swept through the city, knocking over trees and power lines, which resulted in outages for thousands of residents. There was even a tornado in the Central Valley.
The crazy wind has also brought along cooler temperatures: most of LA is supposed to stay in the low 60s today, but is expected to get into the 80s by the end of the week.
If you don't have any power (or if you know someone who has an outage and can't read this) visit the LA DWP website, or call 1-800-DIAL-DWP. While the wind storm was, and still is, a serious issue for many people (and their cars), we're here to help you relive the madness—serious and silly, large and small.
The wind is so strong in Los Angeles, it knocked out Ronda Rousey.— Adam Papagan (@adam_papagan) November 16, 2015
The role of 'Wind' in today's performance of Los Angeles, will be played by Chicago. #LAwind— Lauren Evans (@yeslaurenevans) November 16, 2015
Very windy in Los Angeles. Kale and parking tickets flying through the air as the wind howls "no pay but good exposure" again and again.— Joseph Scrimshaw (@JosephScrimshaw) November 16, 2015
