Another storm brings rain, snow to Southern California, destructive wind to Central Coast


LOS ANGELES — Another storm brought downpours, snow and hail to parts of Southern California and wind damage to the Central Coast.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory Wednesday for the San Gabriel Mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The California Highway Patrol reports snow on the Grapevine section of I-5 but said it didn't stick.

Powerful overnight winds caused damages on the Central Coast at Camp San Luis Obispo, where bleachers, wooden stairs, fences and trees were destroyed.

Late afternoon brought wind gusts of over 30 mph in western and northern LA County. More than 700 Los Angeles customers lost power in areas hit by wind and lightning strikes.

Showers have fallen in areas where a January wildfire stripped the foothills cities of Glendora and Azusa, northeast of Los Angeles. No problems have been reported in communities below the burn areas.
