Santa Ana winds: L.A. county disaster center opens
The department has received “scores and scores” of calls reporting downed trees, power lines and inoperable traffic signals, said spokesman Bob Spencer.
About 50 workers have been deployed to damage sites, and other crews are on standby.
Spencer urged residents to stay indoors and avoid using elevators. If residents must drive, he said they should drive cautiously, and stay away from trees and power lines when walking.
Residents can report damage to county buildings, parks and roads by calling (800) 675-4357.
