LAPD Prepping For Santa Ana Winds By Removing Homeless From High-Risk Areas

Strong Santa Ana winds are on their way through Southern California, and they're bringing an increase in fire danger with them.

After the National Weather Service issued a red-flag warning for "critical fire danger" on Thursday and Friday, LAPD also announced they would remove homeless people and their encampments from those high-risk areas.

According to LAPD spokesman John Rubenstein, they began removing the vagrants on Wednesday night, and will continue on through Thursday. However, Rubenstein did not say the specific locations they would be targeting.

This comes at the same time that Pacific Gas and Electric are conducting their 'Public Safety Power Shutoff', in which they are shutting off power to customers in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, as well as portions of Ventura County and others.
