Winds pummel palm trees in westside

October 5, 2009 12:08:24 AM PDT
Gusty winds on Sunday pummeled several palm trees in west Los Angeles. A towering palm tree snapped off at its base and came crashing down on a car on Jasmine Avenue in palms this afternoon.

The owner said he was in his home when he heard a huge bang outside.

His neighbor broke the news that the tree smashed his car.

Not too far away, a second tree came crashing down in front of a house on alita in mar vista.

It made a mess, but it fell along the street and the sidewalk without damaging homes or cars.
