CALIFORNIA (CNN) — A storm delivered surprise snowfall and windy chaos to Southern California.
The strength of the Californian winds was captured Wednesday, December 31st on a YouTube video as the gust blasted through the Rose Bowl grounds — a day before the college playoff game between No. 2 Florida State and No. 3 Oregon.
The video shows a twisting wind uprooting tents, poles and tarps, sending them skyward in a swirl. People scattered in an area dedicated to football fans. One person was whipped to the ground as the individual tried to grab control of a flying pole. The airborne tents and debris raked parked vehicles.
Four people sustained minor injuries, said spokeswoman Lisa Derderian of the Pasadena Fire Department.
