PALOS VERDES, CA — The first major rainstorm of the season pummeled Los Angeles County this week, with more flood watch warnings on the horizon forecasters said.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula saw nearly nonstop rain since Tuesday night, making way for drier skies ahead for the holiday weekend according to the National Weather Service. Over the last three days, the peninsula got a total of 2.09 inches of rain according to LA Public Works.

So far this season, Palos Verdes has gotten a total of just over two inches of precipitation beginning on Oct. 1 according to Public Works.

Most of LA County’s coastline saw between one and two inches of rain over the last three days. The San Fernando Valley saw between two to three inches of rain while downtown LA saw just under two inches.

Cogswell Dam in the San Gabriel Mountains logged the most amount of rainfall in the last three days according to NWS with 5.55 inches fallen.

Find out what's happening in Palos Verdeswith free, real-time updates from Patch.

This recent storm brought a variety of dramatic weather conditions throughout the county, including a parking structure that partially collapsed in Rolling Hills Estates and dramatic flooding in North Hollywood that stranded at least one car.

California residents will likely see more dramatic rain storms throughout the winter season as forecasters predict a strong El Niño weather pattern to hit the state.

The Climate Prediction Center says with 100 percent certainty the strengthening El Niño weather pattern will last through early winter, and with 90 percent certainty that it will last until spring. The agency, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, expects the El Niño pattern to bring very rainy conditions to California this winter.

In most El Niño winters, the Golden State tends to be rainier than usual from January to March. In moderate to strong El Niño winters, we normally see a strong southern jet stream and atmospheric rivers during that period.

Following the downpour, Los Angeles County beaches were put under a health advisory as high levels of bacteria are expected for at least 72 hours after significant rainfall.

“Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms, as contaminants within the runoff enters the ocean,” according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause illness, especially in children and the elderly.”

Rancho Palos Verdes braces for more rain damage as storm hits SoCal

RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. (KABC) -- As rain fell hard on the Rancho Palos Verdes peninsula Monday, residents of the Seaview neighborhood watched for signs of land movement in the already damaged community, worried that their homes could become unlivable as the earth below them slowly shifts toward the sea.

"You have water pipes that break and then they add more to the misery and then it becomes this vicious cycle," said Nikki Noushkam, who's lived in Rancho Palos Verdes for 19 years.

Right in front of her home near the intersection of Exultant and Dauntless Drive, one home already sits empty, its walls and windows showing what happens when heavy rains wash away the ground beneath it.

Farther to the west, the iconic Wayfarers Chapel was shut down last week, with more than 175 weddings and other events canceled through October 2025.

City officials say the hillside it rests on needs to be stabilized.

Many residents in the affected areas blame city officials for waiting too long to mitigate storm runoff.

"The land movement is caused by water. You should not let water flow freely year after year knowing that you're not supposed to do this," Houshkam told Eyewitness News.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn stopped by the Seaview community Monday afternoon to survey the damage. She says she has asked California Gov. Gavin Newsom to visit the area where dozens of homes are either damaged or threatened.

"I've reached out to the governor and asked him to help us, maybe declare a state of emergency," Hahn said. "It's going to take a lot of engineering and a lot of money."

The city of Rancho Palos Verdes has put together a water mitigation plan that is currently going through regulatory channels for approval. The plan comes with a $35 million price tag and Hahn says she will try to get $10 million from the county to help pay for it.

"If the supervisor is willing to provide us those types of resources we would gladly take that," said Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor John Cruikshank.

Landslide destroys 12 houses in Rolling Hills Estates

A massive landslide in Rolling Hills Estates this weekend destroyed 12 houses, officials said on Sunday, July 9, further underscoring the lurking danger of continually shifting earth on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.All the homes were evacuated by Saturday night.

A massive landslide in Rolling Hills Estates this weekend destroyed 12 houses, officials said on Sunday, July 9, further underscoring the lurking danger of continually shifting earth on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

All the homes were evacuated by Saturday night. At least three of the houses, said Rolling Hills Estates Councilmember Frank Zerunyan, won’t make it through Sunday night — and will fall into the canyon below.

“It’s devastating,” Zerunyan said in a Sunday afternoon interview. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

The “land shift,” as officials are calling it, occurred in a gated community on Peartree Lane.

Residents initially called the Los Angeles County Fire Department to report a water leak around 4 p.m. Saturday, Zerunyan said. When the firefighters arrived, they noticed cracks in the ground — and quickly realized the potential danger.

The county Fire Department ordered evacuations shortly after, multiple officials said.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn, whose Fourth District includes the Peninsula, arrived at Peartree Late Saturday night.

While there, Hahn said during a Sunday afternoon press conference, she saw a fissure winding its way through the homes. The fissure continued to move while she was there, Hahn said — and did so quickly.

“Since I was here last night,” Hahn said, “the land has moved about six feet. So many of these homes that last night were still standing, are crumbling and giving way to the fissure.”

“We believe many of these homes,” she added, “will fall into the canyon sooner rather than later.”

The 12 homes in the evacuation zone were leaning or crumbling, according to photos and details from officials. Driveways were cracked and mishapen. Door and garage frames were slanted, rather than parallel.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Lomita Station patrolled the neighborhood Saturday night to ensure the evacuated homes were secure, Hahn wrote in a Saturday night tweet.

In a follow-up statement later Sunday, Hanh said residents only had a few moments to grab their belongings and leave their homes.

The 12 houses that were evacuated were red-tagged, according to LA County Fire Department spokesperson Capt. Chiyoshi Hasegawa. If a building has been red-tagged, it means it’s been damaged so severely that it’s too dangerous to be in.

Electricity in the area was turned off and utility crews made sure no gas or power lines were disrupted.

Hahn’s office connected officials with the city and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, so the latter agency’s geologist can “survey the land and determine the best course of action,” the supervisor said in her Sunday statement.

In all, 16 people were displaced, Hasegawa said. All of the evacuated residents have found shelter, thanks to the American Red Cross, Zerunyan said.

It’s unclear what caused the landslide. But city officials will look at several possible causes, including the winter deluge and a sinkhole that recently developed less than a mile away, though a building official said the latter explanation is “probably not” the reason.

Either way, land movement on the coast has gone unabated for centuries.

That danger is particularly acute on the Peninsula, a picturesque and relatively rural area of Los Angeles County — as least compared to the rest of the region — that is known for its hiking trails, ocean-view lookouts and lush hillslides.

The Peninsula, which is celebrating its unofficial 100th anniversary as a community this year, received a hint of the potential damage landslides could cause late last year. In December, boulders and other debris rained down from a hillside to the beach below in Palos Verdes Estates, adjacent to Torrance, though that landslide caused only minimal property damage and no injuries.

Rancho Palos Verdes, meanwhile, spends about $1 million per year to resurface a portion of Palos Verdes Drive South that is continually shifting and cracking.

That stretch of road is in a 240-acre southern section of Rancho Palos Verdes known as the Portuguese Bend Landslide area.

Landslides have always been a problem there. But in 1956, the county extended Crenshaw Boulevard to the coast, according to an RPV press release earlier this year. That exacerbated the issue.

Today, the Portuguese Bend Landslide section of RPV is the most active landslide area in North America, according to city officials, moving at a rate of as much as eight feet each year.

The rough boundaries of the PBL area is the Portuguese Bend neighborhood to the west, the Seaview neighborhood to the east, Burma Road to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south.

Rancho Palos Verdes was the last of the four Peninsula cities to incorporate, having done so in 1973. And over the years, some houses on RPV have moved 400 to 500 feet from their original property lines.

RPV is currently working to develop and implement a potentially $33 million plan to lessen the problem of continually shifting land, though that work faces multiple challenges, including from environmentalists because of possible destruction of native habitats.

“There’s a serious risk of major incident if we do not act fast enough,” RPV City Manager Ara Mihranian said in February. “(Palos Verdes Drive South) is sitting on wet soil. There’s a sewer line there. There could be a significant movement that may be very catastrophic and that’s why this is very important.”

Likewise, a preliminary geotechnical analysis of the soil conditions at the December landslide site in Palos Verdes Estates indicated another portion of that slope was actively moving and could fall at any time, PVE City Manager Mark Prestwich said at the time.

The extent of this weekend’s Rolling Hills Estates land movement, meanwhile, likely won’t be entirely known until geologists survey the area.

That survey likely won’t happen until the next day or two, Zerunyan said. Right now, he added, the priority is making sure everyone is safe. Officials were closing off trails in the area, Zerunyan said.

Pete Goodrich, a building official for Rolling Hills estates, confirmed during the Sunday afternoon press conference that there wasn’t much geologists could do at the moment. There’s nothing they can do to stop the houses from falling into the canyon, Goodrich said.

Three of the 12 homes will certainly fall into the canyon, Zerunyan said. The fate of the other nine was not yet known.

That neighborhood has around 80 homes total, the councilmember said.

Building officials will monitor other nearby homes to see if any more need to be evacuated, Goodrich said. But at the moment, that seems unlikely.

“There is a pretty definite line,” he said, “where you would see land movement.”

But that doesn’t mean the other residents are struggling with the fallout.

“We are very much in shock about what’s happening here,” Mayor Britt Huff said during the press conference. “As you can imagine, all of them (the neighborhood) are in a state of uncertainty right now.”

Zerunyan and the rest of the City Council, along with Hahn, attended that press conference. While there, Zerunyan said, they could hear the ground cracking — and he saw a piece of a house’s wall crumble and fall into the canyon below.

“There’s a lot of weight there,” he said, “and gravity is taking hold.”

There is nothing at the bottom of the canyon, Zerunyan said, so no one will be in danger if the houses on Peartree Lane fall.

Zerunyan, who has lived on the Peninsula for 45 years, said there are multiple canyons in Rolling Hills Estates, but the one at the bottom of Peartree lane is particularly steep.

He also said the winter deluge that hit Southern California late last year and early in 2023 may have contributed to the landslide.

City officials, in the coming days and weeks, will likely look at other canyons in the town and determine how vulnerable they are, Zerunyan said. But he seemed pessimistic about whether anything could be done to shore them up.

“I would be reluctant about touching any of the canyons,” he said, “because I don’t want to make it any worse.”

This recent storm brought a variety of dramatic weather conditions throughout Southern California, including dramatic flooding in San Diego County which prompted officials to declare an emergency.

Weather forecasters predicted a very wet winter season to come with a stong El Niño pattern, however, precipitation in California so far this season is only at about 66 percent of average levels.

residents will likely see more dramatic rain storms throughout the winter season as forecasters predict a strong El Niño weather pattern to hit the state.

"What happened in the field of meteorology is that everyone wants to label it El Niño — and this is exactly what's going to happen. Or it's La Niña, so this is going to happen," longtime broadcast meteorologist David Murray told Patch.

In most El Niño winters, the Golden State tends to be rainier than usual from January to March. In moderate to strong El Niño winters, we normally see a strong southern jet stream and atmospheric rivers during that period.

So far, rain totals throughout the state are on par with that of the 2015-16 season, which averaged about 57.9 inches, just above the overall 53.9-inch average based on the California Data Exchange Center's eight-station index.

Following the downpour, Los Angeles County beaches were put under a health advisory as high levels of bacteria are expected for at least 72 hours after significant rainfall.

“Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms, as contaminants within the runoff enters the ocean,” according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause illness, especially in children and the elderly.”

Weber Yen had about 10 minutes to grab what he could from his house and evacuate due to a landslide in his Rolling Hills Estates neighborhood.

He grabbed some essentials, thinking he'd be back in his Peartree Lane home in a few days.

That was Saturday. He could only watch in the difficult hours and days that followed as his house became one of at least 10 destroyed as earth continued to shift on the northern end of Los Angeles County's Palos Verdes Peninsula.

"I didn't think it was going to be that bad," Lin said. "The most important things are the memories. A life-time of memories that we've gathered. Children's pictures back in the days when they didn't have digital photography."

At least 10 homes remained uninhabitable Tuesday with residents facing the threat of more damage and destruction. Cracking, popping and creaking sounds could be heard through the night coming from many of the houses, some of which were ripped from their foundations by the slide.

"The movement is still really astounding to me," said county Supervisor Janice Hahn after touring the area Monday. "How quickly these homes are literally collapsing and sliding down the hill."

Residents on Peartree Lane noticed the land shift Saturday afternoon. Evacuations began shortly after.

County fire officials were closely monitoring 16 other homes in the area for cracks and other signs of movement. Two homes, one at the top of the street and the other at the bottom, were of particular concern.

Yen said there was no warning about the possibility of a major landslide. The cause remains a mystery.

"Why weren't we fore-warned? Did anybody look at this before?"

A landslide has destroyed 12 homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Michelle Valles reports for Today in LA on Monday July 10, 2023.

Hahn said that after the homes stop sliding, the homeowners association in the area can bring in geologists and soil experts to examine the area.

"We think after it's all settled, a good geologist and soil expert maybe will give us a clue about how this happened and if there's any way of preventing it from happening on some other hillside," Hahn said.

Electricity in the area was turned off Saturday and utility crews made sure no gas or power lines were disrupted, authorities said.

The American Red Cross was helping to find shelter for the evacuated families. Huff said the Red Cross offered hotel vouchers to displaced residents, but most had already made other arrangements.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

Hahn said she reached out to Gov. Gavin Newsom Monday but had not yet spoken to him about the situation. She said she would like to invite him to tour the neighborhood.
