A powerful Pacific storm in southern California claimed life of a person, knocking out power to thousands in San Diego.

"A large oak tree fell during Sunday’s storm crushed a car in Pacific Beach, killing a woman inside across Ingraham Street near Fortuna Avenue about 3:15 p.m.," The San Diego Union-Tribune reported quoting San Diego-Fire Rescue Capt. Joe Amador.

According to USA Today, the wind knocked out power to about 38,000 San Diego Gas & Electric customers.

The National Weather Service said the system was expected to drop about one inch of rain in San Diego by early Monday.
