Many trees have fallen and power lines came down across the Central and South coasts as a result of the latest storm.

Firefighters were on scene Saturday morning at an apartment complex in Goleta morning where a large eucalyptus tree had fallen into the two-story building on Bolton Walk.

In San Luis Obispo, crews were assessing a tree that had fallen in front of a home on San Marcos Court where a wedding was scheduled to take place later in the day.
