Coming Storm Could Lead to Mudslides

Up to three inches of rain are forecast for the Southland later this evening leading to potential mudslides in burn areas and the foothills. Some roads will be closed as well as the issuance of ban on on-street parking in various areas.

According to the Los Angeles Times: 
Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon Road to Angeles Crest Highway, Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Vogel Flats to Angeles Forest Highway, and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Angeles Crest Highway will be closed to all traffic except emergency vehicles.

The closures will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday. Residents in the burn areas will not be able to use the roads until the closures are lifted, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works said. The roads will reopen after the threat of rain has passed and safety inspections are conducted.

Parking also will be restricted on posted streets in La CaƱada Flintridge and La Crescenta until the rains have passed, authorities said.
