CHATSWORTH ( — A high wind advisory was in effect Monday for Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

The advisory will be in effect until 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Officials say some areas could see gusts of up to 75 mph.

The Glendale (2), Golden State (5) and Antelope Valley (14) freeways were expected to be most affected.

Strong winds knocked down a more than 30-foot tall tree around 9 p.m. Sunday on Romar Street and Farralone Avenue in Chatsworth. The tree came to rest on a concrete wall and trapped a car underneath.

The winds also left more than 1,100 people without power in the area.

Wind advisories are also scheduled to be in force from 4 a.m. Tuesday until 3 p.m. in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, where winds are expected to blow at between 15 and 30 mph, gusting at up to 45 mph, according to an NWS statement.

The valley winds are expected to affect travel on the Golden State (5), Ventura (101), Ronald Reagan (118), Foothill (210), and San Diego (405) freeways, the NWS said.

Residents were encouraged to secure outdoor furniture and other items.
