grant marcus's report:
We have been having gusts of wind much higher than this report, or anticipated. The Ventura Government Center, Ventura County, has issued a red flag warning for Ventura, as well as the Los Angeles area, with winds and gusts between 35-55 mph. The area is currently 'smoudy,' (a cross between smoke and light clouds. We are still experiencing very low air quality, and people should wear protective masks until air quality improves. There have been many visits to the hospital for respiratory problems associated with our poor air quality. Because of the winds, fires and smoke rekindled last night, with the Government Center issuing hot spot warnings. Some areas of Ventura County remain without power, and some have extended evacuation orders, due to fire and weather unpredictability of high winds.
