A small thunderstorm cell with hail, first appearing in the west La Mirada area around 11:30 a.m., quickly traveled eastward and pummeled Green Hills with a micro burst lasting about 10-15 minutes, felling three large trees.
Two very large 100-foot pines, Douglas Firs if you will according to a Blog FB fan, fell over with one of the trees landing on the home of Alex Han across the street at the corner of Larrylyn Drive and Summershade Drive. No injuries were reported.
The tree gave the appearance of exploding on the house with the garage taking the brunt of the hit causing significant structural damage. Another tree similar in size fell over next door but appeared to missed the home, landing on the front yard and driveway. (more)
