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)

It’s officially the worst at-grade rail and road crossing in the state: a rail line cutting diagonally across a busy intersection in Santa Fe Springs just steps from the La Mirada border in the midst of L.A. County’s industrial heartland.
An estimated 45,000 vehicles and 135 trains travel through the intersection of Rosecrans and Marquardt Avenues in Santa Fe Springs each day–an average of one train crossing every seven minutes. As a result, vehicular traffic on both busy streets is brought to a standstill for a total of 21 hours per week.
Even worse, from 2013 to 2019, the California Public Utilities Commission recorded 31 rail-motor vehicle incidents at the intersection resulting in six fatalities and seven injuries–the most hazardous rail-motor intersection in the state. (more)
