Bakersfield wind damage

Vicki and Jerry Richardson’s property on County Road 585 in Bakersfield sustained serious damage during fierce winds that swept through the area early Saturday morning. Vicki Richardson said she heard a loud roar around 2:30 a.m. Saturday, and she looked out the window of their mobile home to see leaves and twigs twirling in the air. The next morning she awoke to find several large trees down and a massive hole in their large shop building, which was constructed of  concrete blocks.  “If it hadn’t been for the shop, I don’t think we would be here,” Richardson said, explaining that the shop building blocked much of the wind from reaching their  mobile home.
