Just about every neighborhood has a tree or large branch down.

Check these out.

looks like the storm may have knocked this streetlight over at Lytton and Locust.

Palm tree hit house on Bolinas.

The most amazing thing I saw this morning was KUSI’s reporter in PB, standing near the corner of Ingraham and Fortuna, in front of what was clearly a downed large pine. The reporter called it an “oak” several times. Is this newsperson really so ignorant that he cannot recognize a conifer?

Sadly, this old pine, maybe a Torrey, killed someone. Looking at it Google street view, from May 2015,
certainly the branch over the street should have been trimmed, because the whole tree also leaned in that direction.

Glad to see your first concern is getting the species of the tree correct rather than the sad fact that someone tragically lost their life.

I heard that a tree in the lunch area at OB Elementary was on the verge of falling and that some kids had to move classrooms for the day just in case – was expecting photos here, as I didn’t pass by the area today to check it out myself.

By the way, these new time-limit captchas that refuse to let you comment unless you rush to do it before reading the article suck…

Sometimes our staff gets spread thin. And I’ll inform Patty and editordude of your feelings.

Okay, it’s up – photos of the large tree at OB Elementary felled by the winds. Thanks for the heads up.

Dave – We were able to disable the time limit. See if that helps.
