High Winds Sweep South Coast

Posted on Friday, March 2, 2012 4:10pm

Santa Ana wind conditions have swept Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties today, with gusts topping 60 miles an hour at times.

It’s created some hazardous driving conditions on local roads and highways, with the wind buffeting vehicles.

Some scattered, but small scale power outages have been reported throughout the region.

There was a small brush fire on the 400 block of Rocklite Road in Ventura, this morning, but firefighters quickly knocked it down, confining it to about a quarter of an acre of brush.

Investigators say a campfire in a homeless encampment triggered the blaze.

No major problems have been reported from the wind, which is expected to ease tonight.
