Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: In the wake of the California winds

As monstrous wind storms swept across California on Wednesday and Thursday, cities from Sacramento to Tahoe to Sonora felt the full impact of gale-force gusts that reached as high as 65 mph in some areas. 

Homes and businesses alike incurred property damage, wind-fueled fires swept across the Sierra, and thousands were without power across the Valley and up into the hills.

Friday, as the winds died down, many were left assessing the damage and beginning the clean-up and rebuilding process.
