Strong winds topple Kentucky Fried Chicken sign in Long Beach

- A low pressure system moving through the Los Angeles area brought rain, hail, high winds and even mountain snow Monday, giving the region a springtime taste of winter.

Strong winds took down power lines, felled trees and even snapped the base of a KFC sign in the area of 45th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach, sending a giant faux bucket of chicken toppling to the ground.

Northwest gusts of up to 60 mph were forecast for the Antelope Valley Monday night, where a high wind warning was in effect, according to the National Weather Service.

Drivers of high profile vehicles and those towing trailers were advised to expect hazardous road conditions, including wind-blown dust that could reduce visibility to near zero along with possible downed trees, limbs and power lines.
