Three out of four residents do not have power south of Pasedena, California.
The Santa Ana winds wreaked havoc in California this past week, knocking over power lines, up-rooting trees and warranting 500 emergency calls to be placed.
"It is possibly one the biggest wind disasters of a generation," Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told ABC News.
Footage from David Wright's report shows images of the aftermath that would be hard to imagine otherwise.
"I never in a million years, living here pushing 45, thought that I would see anything like this,"one Temple City resident, whom was not named on camera, said.
