The powerful gales - expected to continue on Friday - were the 'strongest easterly wind event in the past several years,' said the National Weather Service, forecasting 'widespread' damage. More than 300,000 Californians were left without power, Los Angeles international airport was briefly closed Wednesday evening and there was traffic gridlock as trees and debris blocked roads and traffic lights were out. Winter storm, high wind or 'red flag' wildfire risk warnings were in place in the neighbouring states of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.
