It's all Chris' fault, ain't it.

If she lived 2 miles closer, she could solve this.

(When do we get the photo-opp of Krekorian philling sandbags in his suit??)

If he's gonna play politics with the like of Villaraigosa, and the Council's Flack-in-Chief Tom LaBong, he'd better learn this stuff.

It's OKAY, Paul. You only have to phill one sandbag, then . . . looking at your watch, hand it to a staffer, then run for the motorcade saying "late for another appointment."

Everyone has been warned of this possibility and I hope have made emergency preparations. We need to take responsibility for ourselves and not wait for the government to step in. Most of the time, it's too late by then.

I'm having a problem with my house my bro lives in because he wanted to wait for summer to fix the roof (I own half) but it's no buono now! I know better but I couldn't convince him and now it's too late! Boo!

1:54 obviously you don't live in either CD2 or Krekorian's Assembly District, because you do not have a clue about Paul and just how hard he works for and takes care of his constituents.

Nina is right. Everyone has to be prepared and take care of themselves while the first responders deal with the key issues.

That being said it is great that the fire department and community organizations can help people with that.

And that Joe is alerting the troops.

from "1:54" to the idol-worshipping ninnies at 2:12 and 2:14

Nothing personal against your latest political "messiah" I just know what they ALL become on City Council... overpaid, over-sheltered, over-rated, and under-achieving.

There's no room on the L.A. City Council for someone who really works hard for constituents. They system isn't set up to allow or permit that. If he does NOW, he won't very soon.

(But as far as wanting a politician who "takes care of me" - sorry, that's either the nanny state, or communism. Neither ones suits my tastes.

The tarnish grows very quickly after election, so enjoy your "hero" now.

Pretty soon, all 15 become identical.

Hey panic squad -- it JUST RAIN.

If things fall apart this quickly up there, then you picked the wrong place to live.

You realize we get rain just about every year, and it won't fly over you just because you have a beautiful view.

I am working on trying
to protect people during the Floods/ Mudslides, and have been in contact with LAUSD regarding bussing Hundreds of Kids, and Hundreds of LAUSD Staff Members, into an area that will be evacuated when the real problems start.
6 of the 7 LAUSD Schools are on the Evacuation routes for the Community Evacuees.
We only have Foothill Blvd., as an entrance and exit for 60,000+
Sunland-Tujunga Residents
We don't have a Council Member, We
do things ourselves when no-one else steps up. Paul Krekorian stepped up and made sure I am getting the support from the District.
Where is Chris?

After dealing with the Station Fire, I am really impressed and grateful for the response by the Red Cross, Animal Services, the Police and and Fire Departments.
We don't think it's over and they are remaining on call.
