Isolated gusts to 60 mph are possible at the mountaintops.

At 4:15 this morning … there was a 68 mile gust at 4:15.

Winds peaked at 48 mph at Camp 8 … and were still gusting to 42 mph at 8:30.

Other peak wind gusts included 41 mph at Zuma Ridge and 40 mph at Lower Decker Canyon.

Winds seemed to be diminishing in western Malibu this morning … but not so much the eastern part of the city. 


A mountain lion attacked and killed two alpacas … and injured a pig … in the mountains above Malibu a short time ago.

It took all day Saturday for search and rescue crews … and tow truck operators …. to retrieve a car that went off the edge of Kanan Dume Road Friday evening. 

One man was hoisted out of the wreckage.

The car careened off Kanan Dume folowing a collision with a white van … which left the van upside down.

No one was hurt in the van … but the man in the car was heard calling out for help. 

A chopper flew him to a trauma center. 


Caitlyn Jenner will pay an $800,000 settlement to multiple members of the family involved in her three-car crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu in 2015.

You may recall that a woman named Kim Howe was killed when her Lexus was rear-ended by Jenner’s SUV and trailer …. on PCH near Latigo Beach.

The Lexus was shoved into opposing lanes … where it hit head-on … a Hummer driven by Peter Wolf-Millesi.

He and his … Lea Wolf-Millesi … her mother and two children will share in the award. 

This apparently ends the legal manner against Caitlyn Jenner. 

She has already settled a lawsuit with the Kim Howe’s survivors … and sheriffs traffic investigators elected not to charge her with any traffic offense for the crash.


The head of the commission that regulates utility safety says the issue of power lines causing fires is so big … so severe … that his agency is defeated in trying to prevent wildfires.
