The Sunday That Was Windy

Photos from the February 9, 2020 windstorm that rocked the #Oakland #SanFrancisco Bay.


With sustained gusts reaching up to 60 mph in the city streets of Oakland alone, the area had to deal with skyscraper windows falling and crashing to the ground, downed trees, numerous power outages, and the dangers of #California drivers not knowing how to approach an intersection during a power outage.


However, unlike other parts of the Bay Area, the power outage did not stop Chinatown merchants from doing business.


Lol.


Be sure to check out our movie of the chaos at a later date.
