High Wind Warning, but you already knew that!


Agency Logo
Friday December 2, 2016, 1:33 PM

Advisory: High Winds Expected Through Saturday Morning
 
Winds have topped 32 MPH here in Altadena and we have had some power lines fall onto a metal fence off of Lake Ave.  Other than lots of trash cans and debris on the road, we have been free from major damage to Altadena.  Thanks for the local weather info Bill, http://www.westphalfamily.com/wxdata2.html

Tips:
Watch for flying debris. Tree limbs may break and objects can be blown off roofs during strong wind gusts. Dust may also be blown up into air and into unprotected eyes.

In the event of a downed power line:
Call for help. Report downed lines to Southern California Edison or Altadena Sheriff's Station. Do not try to free lines or to remove debris yourself.  Report an Outage (24-hours a day, 7-days a week): 1-800-611-1911. If you see a downed power line, call 911 immediately.
Avoid anything that may be touching downed lines, including vehicles or tree branches.  Warn others to stay away.
If you see someone who has been shocked who may be in direct or indirect contact with a power line, do not try to touch them. You may become a second victim. Get help as soon as possible by calling 911.
If a line falls on your car, stay inside the vehicle. Take care not to touch any of the metal frame of your vehicle. Honk your horn, roll down the window and warn anyone who may approach of the danger. Ask someone to call the police. Do not exit the car until help arrives, unless it catches on fire. To exit, open the door, but do not step out. Jump, without touching any of the metal portions of the car's exterior, to safe ground and get quickly away.

In case of power failure:
If you use a gasoline generator or propane heater be mindful those are burning fuel, and produce harmful fumes. Do not use the stove or open oven to heat your home, they are not meant to be used for heating and if left on overnight can cause dangerous carbon monoxide to build up inside your home.  Candles or open flame lanterns must never be left unattended inside a home. It is safest to use battery powered lights, and it is a good time to check batteries.

Watch for objects blowing across the roadway and into your path. Please slow down and keep a safe distance from cars in adjacent lanes as strong gusts could push a car outside its lane of travel.

It is better to prepare before an emergency.  Have a happy and safe weekend.

Community: Tips on how to avoid gift card scams.
 

The old saying, "too good to be true", it probably is.

Be careful this holiday season, criminals are taking advantage of the of the popular trend of holiday gift cards.

Be wary of buying gift cards at auction.  Craigslist, Letgo and Ebay are excellent places to buy and sell used items, but it is difficult to varify if the gift cards are valid or not.


Purchase gift cards directly from the business. Money may be saved with buying gift cards from third party vendors, again, they may not be valid cards.
Be carefuly purchasing cards from the store shelve.  
  1. Always carefully examine both the front and back of a gift card before you buy it. If you can see a PIN number, put the card back and get a different one. If a gift card looks like it could have been tampered with, don’t buy that gift card.
  2. Always ask the store cashier to scan the gift card in front of you. This will guarantee that your card is valid when you buy it and that it reflects the balance you just charged it with. This will also protect you from crooks who exchange worthless cards for the cards you think you are buying.
  3. Always keep your receipt as a proof of purchase as long as there is money stored on the gift card. Since many retailers can track where the gift card was purchased, activated and used, if the card is stolen, some retailers will replace the card for you if you have your receipt.
  4. If possible, register your gift card at the store’s website. Although not all stores offer this option, you can uncover any misuse of your gift card sooner and report it more quickly.
  5. Finally, never, ever give your Social Security number, date of birth or any other unneeded private information when you purchase a gift card. No reputable company will ask for this info.The old saying, "too good to be true", well it probably is.
    This holiday season gift cards are more popular than ever.  Criminals are taking advantage of this trend.  Lets all work together to try and make your gift the best ever.  Have a great Holiday season.



    Be wary of buying gift cards at auction.  Craigslist, Letgo and Ebay are excellent places to buy and sell used items.  It can be difficult to verify if the gift cards are valid or not when buying online.


    Purchase gift cards directly from the business. Money may be saved with buying gift cards from third party vendors; again, they may not be valid cards and difficult to verify.

    Be careful when purchasing cards from the store shelve.  Gift cards can be tampered with, sometimes by employees, inspect the card before purchase.  If a gift card looks like it could have been tampered with, don’t buy that gift card.
    Always keep your receipt.  You can ask the cashier to scan the card to ensure it is valid, and always keep your receipt in case of fraud.

    Protect your personal information.  Stores will not need your social security number, birthdate, or personal information.  When shopping online and personal information is necessary such as home address and phone numbers look for https:// in the address bar, the “S” stands for secure.
