As Southern Californians woke Thursday morning, they emerged from their homes to assess the damage caused by roaring winds that downed trees and branches.

"It's mainly property damage, no injuries," said Deputy Zare Vosankyan at the Crescenta Valley Sheirff's station. "People are waking up and seeing branches on their cars and on top of their houses."

Pasadena appears to be the hardest hit as city officials declared a local state of emergency and described it as the "epicenter" of the wind storm.

Meanwhile, people took their complaints to Twitter, posting photos of the damage and complaining of lost sleep.
