HIGH WINDS EXPECTED AGAIN -- WATCH OUT FOR DOWNED TREES!



Dear Bel-Air Association Members and Community,

The National Weather Service has issued another Red Flag Warning (high fire danger) for this evening through early Sunday evening, forecasting gusty northeast winds and low relative humidity. The NWS has also issued a Wind Advisory, forecasting moderate Santa Ana winds tonight through Saturday.

Please be extra careful in our Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone and watch out for downed trees. Below is a picture of the remains of a large Eucalyptus tree that fell and blocked Glenroy Avenue easier this week. Nonnative Eucalyptus trees are well known for falling during wind events. We worked closely and urgently with the City's Bureau of Street Services to have this removed as soon as possible.

Please always be sure to maintain brush clearance requirements. Please see http://www.lafd.org/fire-prevention/brush/clearance-requirements for more information.

Sincerely,
Your Bel-Air Association
