College football concert in San Jose cancelled due to strong winds

A winter storm swept through Northern California bringing strong winds, downing power lines and causing the cancellation of a OneRepublic and Ellie Goulding concert on Sunday.

The concert was being held in conjunction with the College Football Playoff National Championship. CFP officials said in a statement Sunday the show was canceled due to strong winds and standing water at the concert venue in San Jose.

The concert was one of the major events leading up to Monday's national championship game between Alabama and Clemson.

The National Weather Service says gusts up to 30 mph were forecast for the area.
