A Pasadena home was damaged by a fallen crane and a tree came crashing down in Sierra Madre overnight as strong winds blew through parts of Southern California.
The gusty winds arrived Tuesday night and are expected to continue through part of the day Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Winds between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts around 40 mph, are expected mostly in the mountain, valley and canyon areas.
An early morning gust hit 69 mph at Warm Springs in the Los Angeles County mountains.
The Weather Service advised that travel could be difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles, on Interstate 5 and State Route 14.
In Pasadena, a film production crane toppled over and hit a home in the 3700 block of San Pasqual Street late Tuesday night.
“I was sitting in my house and I heard a huge boom,” Claire Gute said.
Los Angeles County fire officials said the crane was in the neighborhood because it was part of a movie shoot.
A large tree also came crashing down amid gusty winds in the 200 block of Ramona Avenue in Sierra Madre Tuesday night.
Video from the scene showed a damaged vehicle under the fallen tree.
The gusty winds are expected to taper off Wednesday afternoon.
A chance of rain returns to the Southland Thursday.
