Amid Wednesday night’s bomb cyclone event, powerful winds blasted the San Francisco Bay Area, knocking over trees that blocked roads, fell onto houses and cars, and killed one person.
Emergency management departments across the region said they were responding to an unusual number of fallen trees. In the Sonoma County town of Occidental, a tree fell onto a home, killing an infant, the Press Democrat reported.
“There are numerous downed trees and power outages,” said Roger Gass, a forecaster with the weather service. “We’re trying to keep up with all the reports, and we can’t keep up.”
