Red Flag Warnings For Wildfire Danger Still In Effect For Central, South Coasts But Wind Easing


Santa Ana winds created some potentially dangerous wildfire conditions for Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, but meteorologists say the highest wind conditions have already passed.

The wind is predicted to gradually taper off as we move into the weekend.

There are Red Flag Warnings for high brush fire danger for Ventura and Los Angeles County coastal areas and valleys until 6 Friday night.  The Red Flag Warnings for Ventura and Los Angeles County mountains will continue until 10 p.m. Saturday.

Nearly 8,000 Southern California Edison customers in Ventura County were impacted by Public Safety Power Shutoffs Thursday, with 62,000 others in the county on notice they could still be hit with precautionary blackouts.
