By City News Service Wind gusts of up to 65 miles per hour raked Southern California on Sunday as the first Santa Anas of the fall spread one small fire near San Fernando, and prompted parking restrictions in the Hollywood Hills. A wind gauge at Laguna Peak near Point Mugu clocked a 65-mph gust, and a gauge in the hills above Malibu clocked a top speed of 57 mph early Sunday morning. But by midafternoon, winds had diminished somewhat. The National Weather Service extended its Red Flag warning until 11 p.m. Sunday, and warned that lingering very low humidities may extend the red alert into today, even after the winds die down.

Certain narrow and steep roadways there are posted as tow-away zones during Red Flag situations, and the designation went into effect Sunday morning but was lifted by 9 p.m. Hundreds of sailboats at Catalina Island’s Two Harbors Resort were able to sail home Sunday afternoon after 35-mph gusts in the Catalina Channel subsided and a small-craft warning expired. Waves described as “snotty” by one mariner had spoiled the sail over for the island’s popular “Buccanneer Days” party. “You had to be a real pirate to get here Friday, that ocean was terrible,” said Two Harbors employee Mary Brye.last_img
