The whipping winds caused problems for people living near tall trees and power lines.
Mother Nature huffed and puffed and blew down a 100-foot tree in Clovis.
It narrowly missed two apartments and a woman.
"I was about to come out the door, all I heard really was just a snap. And I saw the top of the tree coming down and it landed within feet of our doorstep," said Amanda Contreras, who is glad she didn't leave her house sooner.
"Had I been out here a minute earlier, I don't know. It was scary, you could hear it as it was breaking, it was really scary," said Contreras.
Wind toppled dozens of trees across the Valley, including a tree near McKinley and Hayes in West Fresno, which took power lines down with it.
It cut off electricity to hundreds of people, but fortunately not much damage.
"I saw a short circuit, a few flames, but that was it," said Peter Reynaga.
PG&E reported more than two dozen outages around the Valley.
