SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Blustery winds are still surging through California after downing trees, fanning wildfires and shutting off power to 25,000 customers in the northern and central regions. Red flag warnings of dry, gusty and dangerous fire conditions are continuing Tuesday in mountains, valleys, canyons and deserts around the state. Pacific Gas & Electric has shut off power to customers in 20 counties to reduce the risk that power lines could be toppled and spark blazes. Meanwhile, winds are pushing a fire west of Santa Barbara through dense chaparral, burning thousands of acres and prompting evacuations of campgrounds and ranches.
