    Post 140 MPH winds batter Los Angeles, Las Vegas

    Powerful winds continued to batter Los Angeles, Las Vegas and other southwestern U.S. locales Thursday -- downing trees, delaying flights and leaving hundreds of thousands without power.

    Wind gusts stronger than 140 mph -- which would be equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane -- have been measured on the Sierra Crest mountain ridge, according to the National Weather Service. Lower-lying areas also have been hit hard by Santa Ana winds, with 80 mph gusts expected in Southern California.

    I only have one friend in the state of California and my husband's cousin who lives in Las Vegas. Haven't heard any bad news from them!

    they say no news is good news, so they may have escaped the high winds .
