Gusts of over 10 mph wind caused not only power outages in the city of Temple City but also knocked down a tree in the 5400 block of Persimmon Avenue Tuesday night. Power outages ranged from Temple City Boulevard across to Golden West Avenue and Garibaldi Avenue down to Live Oak Avenue.   At approximately 6:45 pm is when the tree was uprooted in the southeast end of the city.  The tree engulfed an older van and damaged the windshield.  A motor home was parked across the street but only incurred minor scratches.  The public works team worked diligently till 12:30 am clearing the road of most of the branches.  “We are going to need the County’s help to remove the remains,” commented new Public Services Manager Bill Tidwell.
