PARADISE, Calif. (AP) — Falling trees killed two people in separate incidents as winds topped 60 mph in Northern California.

Authorities tell the Oroville Mercury-Register (http://bit.ly/1Bl61bb ) that a person in a car in a residential neighborhood in the small town of Paradise died Tuesday when a tree fell on the vehicle. About 3 ½ miles away, another person was killed after a tree tumbled into a home.

The National Weather Service reports that the strong winds also toppled several other trees onto homes, streets, cars and power lines.

The names of those killed haven't immediately been released.
