Rick and Kelly DeGraw hold one another for support as they struggle to keep from being blown over by the wind that toppled their fifth-wheel trailer over as they drove on the I-210 freeway October 22, 2007 in Fontana, California. They were trying to reach a safe location upon seeing a high wind warning sign but were quickly caught by the wind. In the distance, a plume of smoke blows down from a major wildfire near Lake Arrowhead, California. Southern California is being pounding by Santa Ana Winds pushing numerous major wildfires into communities surrounded by native Chaparral habitat burning homes and business as they advance. Gale-force winds have sped up to more than 100 miles per hour in some high mountain locations.
