Power poles down on 9th Street and San Vicente.

Electrical power was out on San Vicente west of 11th Street. Linemen said the earliest it would be back on would be late Tuesday. They said the latest electricity would be restored would be sometime tomorrow. It appeared that high winds knocked the tree onto the power lines, in turn causing two power poles to go down, and leaving one at an odd angle supported by other power lines.

Strong burst of wind and downpours dropped a total of 2 inches of rain on Santa Monica Monday and Tuesday. Other LA County communities experienced mudslides and mandatory evacuations, such as Silverado Canyon. Laurel Canyon and other canyons had roadblocks and only residents were allowed in.
