Ferocious winds hit Southern California as heat wave breaks

A fallen tree blocks transit on SR-79 between Paso Picacho Campground and Lake Cuyamaca before Caltrans workers removed it on Friday, Sept. 9, 2022 in San Diego, Calif. A surge of clouds and showers associated with Tropical Storm Kay off Mexico's Baja California peninsula knocked the edge off temperatures in Southern California at times but also were a potential problem for solar generation. The storm was downgraded from a hurricane Thursday evening. (Nelvin C. Cepeda/The San Diego Union-Tribune via AP)
