California IN BRIEF : YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK : High Winds Force Brief Evacuation

From Times staff and Wire reports

More than 120 guests were temporarily evacuated from Yosemite Lodge because park rangers feared that high winds might topple trees onto the building. The guests were allowed to return to their rooms after the winds quieted Friday afternoon and a National Park Service crew cut down two trees that were considered potential dangers. There was no damage to any units, said Dan Jensen of Yosemite Park and Curry Co., which manages the lodge.
