It is blowing 1000000mph wind here in Southern CA!!!

Man, you can hear the wind outside the house howling. Trees are falling, signs are flying, kittens are being blown away, old ladies getting knocked over, people without power, Audi gets crushed by trees, street signs don't work... The worst of all, dust everywhere in the house It is coming in from the windows, doors and vents, even they are all closed....

Anyone else experiencing high wind elsewhere?

Wind in BC. Environment Canada's current numbers re wind speed for YVR: WNW 84 km/h gust 113 km/h. Definitely more vigourous than recent "wind events" which toppled trees, taking power out, and doing considerable other damage. No such events yet this time, but who knows...

It's windy here in Los Angeles, but nothing compared to what you are all talking about. Actually, right now it's pretty calm out, but it's cold. It was windy last night and this morning. No dust, though. I didn't see much rain here in Los Angeles either. When I went to work at midnight, there were a couple of drops of water on my car, but it was otherwise dry. It's supposed to be really nice and warm next week. I'm looking forward to that.

Watch out for the winds...if you have a straighline storm- some of those can be worse than tornados. The last one that hit memphis was back when I was a senior in high school....it was called "hurricane elvis" we didn't have power for 3 weeks or anything else for that matter....it was just as bad as a tornado. Be careful- stay safe!!!! Definitely sleep / stay in the interior of your home away from windows/ etc.

I slept through it Isn't that horrible I've slept through several tornados in the past too....i sleep like a rock It took my mom shaking me awake and screaming at me to get me in a closet and away from the window IT was bad though- all of the stores ran out of ice, and the lines for gas were several hours long....we didn't have a generator eithor and it happened the last week in July....which in memphis=hot as all get out!!!! I was also going to design school at the time....so the first day after the storm...we couldn't even drive out of the neighborhood because of all the trees/etc...after that though...it took about 2 hours to get to my design classes and back every day....and it had to be held in Andertons Seafood Resturant in the ball room because it was the only place in that area with power- the only flowers we could get were pink carnations....so for two weeks we had carnations (now does everyone understand why I HATE them) and one shop in the entire midsouth had flowers/power so that's why. There was one good thing however- my candle obsession- at the time i had TONS of candles all over the house and in my room- so that came in handy when we had no power for several weeks We cooked out a ton too....we had to keep our food in an ice chest and finding ice was next to impossible because everyone got it....so we had to grill out all of our meals It was crazy...but it was amusing to say the least.

Very windy tonight on Vancouver Island (Juan de Fuca Strait)! Sustained winds are 80 km/hr (50 mi/hr). Something on the deck has blown loose and I really don't feel like going out there. We had heavy, then horizontal rain today, too.

Cheers, from

Fortunately not right now here (with all of the snow it becomes a big mess). We're near Boulder, CO and we always have wind here. Normal gusts are 30-50 mph (50-80 kph). But we do have days where it will get up to 100 mph (160 kph). The city of Louisville passed a building code a couple of years ago that roofs had to stand up to the 100 mph winds. And since we have so much wind up here, it doesn't cause as much damage (everything has long ago blown away).

When it gets windy in Denver, they have damage.

Stay safe and pay attention to everything if you are outside. Flying debris is dangerous.

The wind here in Los Angeles actually kept me up part of the night here in Los Angeles on Thursday. We have a louver window panel in our bedroom and it rattled it all night long, not to mention the noise it was making with the empty trash cans in the alleyway. It got up last night too, but maybe I was so tired I slept through it.

Spoke too soon - the winds have picked up and now are about 35-50 mph. Not as bad as the 1000000 in southern CA.
