West recovering from storms

| No Comments

Western United States, particularly California, got hit with severe wind storms recently, according to ABC News.

These violent winds left nearly 200,000 people without power in parts of California and Utah after the worst wind storm in a decade, reported ABC.

Power lines were downed, fires raged throughout the night, and lights on all terminals at the Los Angeles airport went out at the same time.

Winds of over 150 miles per hour devastated parts of Utah and Colorado, destroying houses and toppling trees all over the West.

The Red Cross has opened stations in parts of California that saw the worst damage, providing people with food and shelter if needed.

The mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa, told ABC News that crews from all over the West have been called to help clear the streets of fallen trees and debris.
