    Dec. 29: We Post Readers' Emailed Storm Photos...And Report Tree Damage At Henry Elementary School

    (December 29, 2004) -- readers have emailed us storm-related photos...and one has described winds with mini-tornado type attributes. reader P. Harvey captured this at Monlaco Rd. at Senasac Ave. He said in an accompanying email:

    "You've been calling it thunderstorm damage, but I was up at 12:30 a.m. and would say it was more like a mini-tornado (I don't know the terminology nuances) -- there was a loud hissing sound, the air was suddenly grey and the rain became tiny droplets flying horizontally. Any confirmation of this?"

    No confirmation...but no one has contradicted your firsthand report either. reader Bruce Tennant captured the shot below of trees at Alamitos Bay, bent by strong winds during the storm. Taken from 64th Pl. at Bay Shore Walk:

    And Messrs. Harvey and Tennant: appreciates your emailed photos; thank you.

    We learned late in the afternoon that the fierce winds had torn off tree limbs and downed a large tree at Patrick Henry Elementary School and adjacent neighborhoods in the area of Conant St. at Carfax Ave.

    This tree branch (illuminated in the headlights of's mobile unit) took out part of the easterly school fence.

    This large tree crashed onto the playground on the Conant St. side of Henry Elementary school.
