Heavy winds hitting us this morning near the mountains in the Eaton Canyon area of Altadena. Seems to be 30-40+ mph sustained winds which woke me up around 5:30am and continuing on.

From earlier this morning, there’s a high wind warning:

…HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 PM PDT THIS
AFTERNOON…

* WINDS AND TIMING…Northeast winds increasing to 30 to 45 mph
with gusts to 65 mph. Isolated gusts to 75 mph possible across
favored locations.

* Impacts…Winds this strong may down trees and power lines,
causing property damage or power outages. Cross winds and
blowing dust can make driving difficult, especially for
drivers of high profile vehicles and vehicles towing trailers.
Travel on Interstate 5 and Highway 14 in Los Angeles County
will be affected by the winds.

Listened to Summer Series Episode 1: US Storm Edition from On the Media | WNYC Studios
This summer we revisit some of our Breaking News Consumer's Handbooks. To mark the ramping up of hurricane season, the first episode in this mini-series is the US Storm Edition.

For media professionals, hurricanes offer the very best kind of bad news because the story arc is predictable and invariably compelling. In this summer series revisiting some of our Breaking News Consumer’s Handbooks, we examine the myths, misleading language, and tired media narratives that clog up news coverage at a time when clarity can be a matter of life and death.

Brooke speaks with Dr. Robert Holmes, National Flood Hazard Coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey; Gina Eosco, a risk communication consultant; and Scott Gabriel Knowles of Drexel University, author of The Disaster Experts: Mastering Risk in Modern America.
