16. LAT: High winds blew down 400 trees in Griffith Park
Los Angeles city crews on Friday were working to clean up debris and some 400 downed trees in shuttered Griffith Park, many of which had fallen on Roosevelt Municipal Golf Course. They said the park would likely be open by sunrise Saturday.

Officials said two other parks in Northeast L.A. -- Ernest E. Debs and Elysian Park -- also had damage including hundreds of downed trees but were not closed. Other parks across the city were mostly spared, they said.

"If this kind of damage had occurred throughout every park in the city, we'd really be in trouble," said Kevin Regan of the parks department. "But fortunately it's manageable," he said.

In an interesting twist, Regan and other officials said native California trees fared better during the winds than foreign trees such as eucalyptus that are more susceptible to root fungus.
