State Of Emergency: Bel-Air, Woodland Hills & Topanga Get Nearly 11 Inches Of Rain; More Heavy Precipitation Expected; Flash-Flood Warnings, Evacuation Orders In Place For Some Areas

UPDATED, 1:20 p.m.: The National Weather Service in Los Angeles has issued a flash-flood warning for West Central Los Angeles County and Southeastern Ventura County until 6 p.m. today as several local counties remain under a state of emergency.“Doppler radar indicated moderate to heavy rainfall moving into muc...

UPDATED, 1:20 p.m.: The National Weather Service in Los Angeles has issued a flash-flood warning for West Central Los Angeles County and Southeastern Ventura County until 6 p.m. today as several local counties remain under a state of emergency.

“Doppler radar indicated moderate to heavy rainfall moving into much of the warned area,” read a statement from the NWS. “This additional rain will likely cause additional flash flooding as well as rock and mudslide activity. Recent burn areas could also see debris flow.”

PREVIOUSLY at 12:28 p.m.: Sunday marked one of the wettest days in the recorded history of Los Angeles, according to Mayor Karen Bass, and downtown L.A. set a record for the date, with over 4 inches of rain.

Los Angeles officials urged residents to stay home and off the roads Monday. Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in eight counties in the state, including Los Angeles and Orange counties. Los Angeles County later declared its own state of emergency.

But many of L.A. county’s priciest zip codes were hammered much worse than most.

According to the National Weather Service, bucolic Bel-Air received 10.59 inches of rain in the past two days. Mud and debris flows were reported in the Beverly Glen area, where about five homes suffered “significant” damage, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Sixteen people were displaced as city Building and Safety officials were summoned to assess the damage and determine if the homes need to be red-tagged as uninhabitable.

The Los Angeles Fire Department reported that Benedict Canyon and Beverly Glen Canyon roads were closed because of flooding and rock slides.

Video posted online by KNX News reporter Jon Baird shows an SUV buried in mud up to the windows on North Beverly Drive in Beverly Crest.

Another post from KCAL’s John Schreiber seemed to show a Beverly Crest-area house that slid off its foundation and down Caribou Lane.

Topanga was hit even harder, with very close to 11 inches of rain (10.8, per the NWS) falling in the past two days. According to a news conference hosted by L.A. Mayor Karen Bass this morning, a portion of Topanga Canyon Road was closed. Last night, evacuation orders were put in place for a portion of Topanga.

Another major north-south artery in the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Canyon, was shut down at Mullholland and large boulders rained down onto the road.

Stretches of nearby Piuma Road were also closed due to flooding and debris flows, with sheriff’s officials reporting several vehicles completely submerged on Piuma.

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools were closed Monday.

Two homes sustained significant damage in Studio City when mud and debris slid down a hillside along Lockridge Road. Fire crews evacuated residents from nine homes on the stretch. In the Tarzana/Encino area, three homes were impacted by a debris flow along Boris Drive, prompting the evacuation of 16 residents and nine homes.

With rain expected to continue falling throughout the day and into Tuesday, a flash flood warning was issued until 3 p.m. for the Santa Monica Mountains and the Hollywood Hills.

“The intensity of the rain will resume,” an official announced at Mayor Bass’ news conference. “Conditions will deteriorate as the afternoon unfolds.”

A flood advisory was issued for the rest of L.A. County through 3 p.m. as rain continued falling. Videos posted online show the region’s waterways – including the L.A. River near Disney and Radford Studios and Ballona Creek near Playa Vista – very close to overtopping bridges and their concrete banks.

Roads leading to and through the perennially-flooded Sepulveda Basin were closed, including Burbank Boulevard between the 405 and Balboa Boulevard and Woodley Avenue between Burbank and Victory boulevards.

Residents in the La Tuna Canyon Road area north of Hollywood Burbank Airport were ordered to evacuate until Tuesday due to the high risk of debris flow triggered by the heavy rain.

The affected area borders Horse Haven Street to the north, Martindale Avenue to the east, Penrose Street to the south, and Ledge Avenue to the west, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Eastbound La Tuna Canyon Road was closed to all but residents in the evacuation area at Ledge Avenue, at Sunland Boulevard, at Honolulu Avenue and the westbound lanes are closed at the 210 Freeway with only freeway access allowed.

Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm are closed today. The Getty Center and Villa and The Los Angeles Zoo announced they would also be closed.

“Additional rainfall amounts through Tuesday are generally expected to range from 1 to 2 inches for most coastal and valley areas, with 2 to 4 inches in the foothills and mountains. However, L.A. County will likely see higher amounts through Tuesday with an additional 1.50 to 3 inches for coastal/valley areas, and 3 to 5 inches for foothills and mountains. Rain rates between 0.10 and 0.25 inches per hour will be common through Tuesday, however local rates between 0.50 and 1 inches per hour will occur in heavier showers and thunderstorms.”

According to the National Weather Service, 4.10 inches of rain fell in downtown Los Angeles Sunday, breaking the daily rainfall total for Feb. 4 of 2.55 inches set in 1927. It was the third wettest February day and the 12th wettest day for anytime during the year since 1877, when rainfall totals first started being recorded. The wettest day on record for downtown Los Angeles was 5.88 inches set on March 21, 1938, the year of the city’s great flood.

City News Service contributed to this report.

Record-setting storm continues soaking, flooding Los Angeles County

A flood advisory was issued for the rest of L.A. County through 9 p.m. as rain continued falling.

LOS ANGELES — A relentless atmospheric river continued dumping rain across Southern California Monday, adding to record-setting rain totals that had already reached double-digits in some areas and caused mud and debris flows that forced evacuations and left some homes heavily damaged.

By Monday morning, the storm had already dropped more than 10 inches of rain in Woodland Hills, according to the National Weather Service. Bel Air received nearly 10.6 inches, while Beverly Hills received more than 7 inches. Some areas in the Santa Monica Mountains received nearly 11 inches.

And more rain was still falling. NWS forecasters said as much as 3 more inches could fall in most Los Angeles County areas, with higher amounts possible in the mountains. The storm could also still generate thunderstorms through Tuesday night, forecasters said, resulting in even higher rainfall rates and raising the risk of flooding.

With rain expected to continue falling throughout the day and into Tuesday, a flash flood warning was issued until 9 p.m. for the Santa Monica Mountains and the Hollywood Hills, with forecasters saying between 6 and 11 inches of rain had already fallen in those areas and "moderate to heavy rain" expected to continue into the early evening.

A flood advisory was issued for the rest of L.A. County through 9 p.m. as rain continued falling.

"Widespread roadway and small stream flooding will continue across much of Los Angeles County through this evening," NWS forecasters said. "In addition, there will be the threat of debris flows, as well as additional rock and mudslide activity, especially in the mountains and canyon roadways."

Mud and debris flows impacted multiple areas during heavy downpours that occurred overnight and early Monday morning.

In the Hollywood Hills, a mudslide severely damaged six homes and threatened a seventh along Beverly Drive in the Beverly Crest area. Los Angeles Fire Department crews escorted 15 residents out of the area, including nine children, but no injuries were reported. City Building and Safety crews were assessing the extent of damage to the homes.

Two homes sustained significant damage in Studio City when mud and debris slid down a hillside along Lockridge Road. Fire crews evacuated residents from nine homes on the stretch. In the Tarzana/Encino area, three homes were impacted by a debris flow along Boris Drive, prompting some evacuations.

Rocks and boulders fell on parts of Malibu Canyon Road overnight, prompting a closure along that street that was later lifted. But stretches of Piuma Road and Topanga Canyon Boulevard were also closed due to flooding and debris in the Malibu/Topanga areas, with sheriff's officials reporting several vehicles completely submerged on Piuma.

The Los Angeles Fire Department reported earlier closures on Benedict Canyon and Beverly Glen Canyon roads because of flooding and rock slides.

Roads leading to and through the Sepulveda Basin were closed due to flooding, including Burbank Boulevard between the San Diego (405) Freeway and Balboa Boulevard and Woodley Avenue between Burbank and Victory boulevards.

Los Angeles officials urged residents to stay home and off the roads Monday. Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in eight counties in the state, including Los Angeles and Orange counties.

Los Angeles County later declared its own state of emergency, and Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass on Monday also signed a local emergency declaration.

The emergency proclamations will help expedite procurement of vital supplies and resources, deployment of disaster service workers and the use of emergency protective measures such as evacuation orders, officials said.

Los Angeles Unified School District campuses remained open Monday, with the exception of Vinedale Elementary School in Sun Valley and Topanga Elementary Charter School. Classes for Vinedale Elementary were relocated to Glenwood Elementary. Classes for Topanga Elementary were relocated to Woodland Hills Academy. Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said district officials would continue to monitor the storm, and plans could change throughout Monday.

At a midday news conference, Carvalho said student attendance was 63% on Monday, but he said 90% of district teachers, bus drivers and classified employees reported for work.

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools were closed Monday, with multiple reports of mud and rock flows affecting canyon roads in the area.

Some California State University campuses were either closed or switched to modified operations Monday. Cal State Los Angeles, Cal State Northridge, Cal State Long Beach and Cal State Fullerton all adjusted operations, with many in-person classes shifting online or switching to alternative programming. Students were advised to check with their instructors for specific information.

Long Beach City College closed both its Liberal Arts Campus at 4901 E. Carson St. and its Pacific Coast Campus at 1305 E. Pacific Coast Highway on Monday. Students were advised to check to see if their classes will be online, and employees will work remotely.

Residents in the La Tuna Canyon Road area north of Hollywood Burbank Airport were ordered to evacuate until Tuesday due to the high risk of debris flow triggered by the heavy rain.

The affected area borders Horse Haven Street to the north, Martindale Avenue to the east, Penrose Street to the south, and Ledge Avenue to the west, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Eastbound La Tuna Canyon Road was closed to all but residents in the evacuation area at Ledge Avenue, at Sunland Boulevard, at Honolulu Avenue and the westbound lanes are closed at the Foothill (210) Freeway with only freeway access allowed.

Evacuation centers for people and household pets have opened at Sunland Senior Citizen Center at 8640 Fenwick St. and Lake View Terrace Recreation Center at 11075 Foothill Blvd. Large animals can be evacuated to Hansen Dam Horse Park at 11127 Orcas Ave. in Lake View Terrace, and the LA Equestrian Center at 480 Riverside Drive in Burbank.

Los Angeles County issued evacuation orders for the Owen Fire burn area, on Santa Maria Road north of Topanga Canyon, and the Agua Fire area along Soledad Canyon Road east of Agua Dulce Canyon Road.

Those orders will be in effect through 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Additionally, evacuation warnings were issued for areas of unincorporated Los Angeles County near burn scars through 6 p.m. Tuesday, including the Juniper Hills and Valyermo areas from the Bobcat Fire, and the following areas of Lake Hughes and King Canyon from the Lake Fire:

-- 20000 block of Pine Canyon Road;

-- 18000 block of Ellstree Drive;

-- 46000 block of Kings Canyon Road;

-- 18000 block of Newvale Drive; and

-- 43000 block of Lake Hughes Road.

The city of Duarte also issued an evacuation warning for an area near the Fish Fire burn scar. That warning will be in effect through 10 a.m. Tuesday for the area on Mel Canyon Road between Fish Canyon Road and Brookridge Road.

In Orange County, a voluntary evacuation warning was issued at 7 p.m. Sunday for Silverado, Williams, Modjeska and Trabuco canyons due to heavy rains. A map with detailed depictions of the areas under evacuation warnings can be found at www.ocsheriff.gov/emergency.

Canyon residents were encouraged to prepare and voluntarily evacuate, especially those with disabilities, access and/or functional needs, and canyon residents with large animals.

Any person with disabilities and those with access and/or functional needs requiring evacuation assistance were asked to call Orange County Sheriff's Department Dispatch at 714-647-7000.

Orange County Animal Care encouraged animal owners in voluntary evacuation areas to implement their personal evacuation plans. Pet evacuation tips are available at https://ocpetinfo.com/education-resources/disaster- preparedness. Any person needing assistance with information about animal or large animal evacuations should call Orange County Animal Care at 714-935-6848 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or 714-259-1122 after-hours from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.

With more rain on the way, the storm had already shattered some local rain records by Sunday.

According to the National Weather Service, 4.10 inches of rain fell in downtown Los Angeles Sunday, breaking the daily rainfall total for Feb. 4 of 2.55 inches set in 1927. It was the third wettest February day and the 12th wettest day for anytime during the year since 1877, when rainfall totals first started being recorded. The wettest day on record for downtown Los Angeles was 5.88 inches set on March 21, 1938.

A total of 1.76 inches of rain were reported at Los Angeles International Airport Sunday, breaking the record for the day of 0.56 inches set in 1958. There were 1.50 inches of rain reported at Long Beach Airport, breaking the record for the day of 0.69 inches set in 1975.

Thousands of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and Southern California Edison customers lost power during the storms, and utility officials said crews were working frantically to restore service.

NWS forecasters warned residents to expect more rain into at least Tuesday.

"Periods of rain, mountain snow, and possible thunderstorms will continue through at least Tuesday night and possibly through Thursday morning," according to the NWS. "Light to moderate rain will be common, with locally heavy but brief downpours. Snow levels will lower each day with mountain snow issues increasing. Gusty west to northwest winds will form Wednesday into Thursday."

Forecasters said the showers should taper off Thursday and Friday, "with dry but still cool conditions to follow."

A winter storm watch will be in effect in the eastern San Gabriel Mountains through 10 p.m. Tuesday, with forecasters predicting as much as 2 to 3 feet of snow above 7,000 feet, as much as 20 inches as low as 6,000 feet, and 8 inches at 5,000 feet.

A less severe winter storm advisory will be in place until 10 p.m. Tuesday in the western San Gabriel Mountains and the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway corridor.

A high surf advisory was issued from 10 p.m. Sunday to 10 p.m. Monday at Orange County beaches, and until 9 p.m. Monday at Los Angeles County beaches.

The city of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority increased shelter and housing voucher availability to accommodate an influx of homeless people coming in from the storm. Shelters were opened at the Lincoln Heights Senior Citizen Center at 2323 Workman St., Mid Valley Senior Citizen Shelter at 8825 Kester Ave. in Panorama City, South LA Sports Activity Center at 7020 S. Figueroa St. and Oakwood Recreation Center at 767 California Ave. Residents can call 2-1-1 for transportation to a shelter.

The storm was also affecting the recreational activities. Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knott's Berry Farm were closed Monday. The Getty Center and Villa announced they would be closed Monday. The Los Angeles Zoo is also closed Monday. Disneyland plans to close an hour earlier than scheduled, at 8 p.m.

Evacuation warnings are in place in Los Angeles County and Ventura County as a powerful storm is expected to pass through Southern California.

Around 10 p.m. Saturday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said an evacuation warning is in effect for La Tuna Canyon Drive, starting at Martindale to the east, Primrose to the south, Ledge to the west, and Horse Haven to the north.

LAFD added this will likely be upgraded to an evacuation order at 8 a.m. Sunday.

The evacuation warnings will be in place until 5 p.m. Sunday for Matilija Canyon, North Fork, and Camino Cielo in unincorporated Ojai.

The major storm, spanning multiple days, is expected to create "life-threatening" flood risks throughout the Los Angeles area, forecasters said Saturday.

"People need to start preparing now for a major flooding event," National Weather Service forecasters warned.

Saturday night the rain was already coming down in Ventura County. Road closures were in place.

"I'm a little more scared this time with the warnings to evacuate," said Roberta Smith, a Ventura County resident. Smith said she cleaned her gutters around the house to prepare for more rain.

Neighbors off Hemlock Street have been gone since late December after water waist-deep flooded some homes.

LOS ANGELES, CA — A powerful storm treated the Southland to another round of moderate to heavy rainfall Thursday, causing scattered flooding and a dramatic hillside collapse in La Tuna Canyon while continuing to raise fears of mud and debris flows in burn areas.

A large chunk of hillside just below La Tuna Canyon Road in the Sun Valley area gave way overnight amid an intense downpour. No homes are in the area, which was already under evacuation orders, so no structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.

The road had already been closed south of the Foothill (210) Freeway.

A large tree fell onto a house in Sherman Oaks, but no one was injured.

Flooded streets were reported around the area, including along Sand Canyon Road between Iron Canyon and Placerita canyon roads near Santa Clarita. A man was rescued by a good Samaritan in Canyon Country after his SUV was swept into a wash and overturned.

Voluntary evacuation orders were lifted Thursday afternoon for all affected areas of Burbank. The only restriction remaining in place was a mandatory evacuation for La Tuna Canyon Road from the 8300 to the 9000 blocks. The road remained closed from the 8300 block to the Foothill (210) Freeway.

Officials Wednesday had advised people who reside in the areas affected by the La Tuna Canyon, Creek and Skirball fires to prepare for evacuations and street closures, but late in the afternoon, evacuation orders that had been scheduled to take effect at 6 p.m. in the Kagel Canyon, Lopez Canyon and Little Tujunga Canyon areas were canceled due to an updated forecast.

The mandatory evacuations La Tuna Canyon Road did go into effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Shelters at the Sylmar Recreation Center and Westwood Recreation Center were closed Thursday evening, but the shelter at the Sun Valley Recreation Center, 8133 Vineland Ave., remained open.

The storm -- a Pacific weather system greatly beefed up by a subtropical atmospheric river -- was forecast to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain in Los Angeles County coastal and valley areas and between 2 and 5 inches in the mountains.

La Tuna Canyon fire road leads to views of city, peaks, even the ocean

This popular route north of Burbank, more of a hike than a walk, is a steady climb into the Verdugo Mountains, punctuated by shortcuts up steep inclines. There’s very little shade here, so climb early in the day or on a cool day, and take plenty of water. Also, bring sturdy shoes with good soles — and strong legs.

1. Begin from a parking lot on La Tuna Canyon Road, just south of its exit off the 210 Freeway. Walk up a slight incline on an old paved road, South La Tuna Canyon Road.

2. After about a third of a mile, turn right and walk toward a sign reading “Hostetter.” This is officially Hostetter Fire Road.

3. In less than half a mile on the fire road, there’s a shortcut: a trail to the left that’s a very difficult 0.6 mile climb up a slippery, rocky slope. If you decide to take it, take it slow. Otherwise, bear right and stay on the main dirt road.

4. The climb is gentler this way, as the fire road hugs the hillside and does switchbacks along ravines filled with sycamore and oak. (“Tuna” means prickly pear cactus fruit in Spanish, but there is not actually a lot of cactus here.)

5. After about 2½ miles, by a metal water tank, you’ll find the top of the shortcut trail. There are people who take the steep way down. This is not recommended. Instead, take in some scenery. The great San Gabriel Mountains rise before you, with Mt. Lukens straight ahead and Mt. Wilson over to the right. In the foreground are the communities of Tujunga, La Crescenta and Montrose, with Glendale and La Cañada over to the right.

MAP: Find the perfect L.A. Walk near you

6. The Hostetter Fire Road continues for some distance. If you walk about 20 minutes farther, to a T-intersection under a tall radio tower, you can see Glendale, downtown L.A. and, on a clear day, the ocean. Explore in that direction, or return to the parking area the way you came.
