In Reseda, strong wind gusts caused a large pine tree to uproot and fall over, partially crushing one car.

A power outage in two areas of the San Fernando Valley also left some 2,000 people temporarily without electricity.

The winds came amid a wind advisory issued by the National Weather Service that was set to remain in effect until Thursday afternoon.
