Evacuation Orders Lifted in Foothills After Rainstorm Passes

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Yesterday's rainstorm did not yield the anticipated downpours, which spared the burn-scarred and now water-logged hillsides of Foothill communities like La Cañada-Flintridge and La Crescenta from further destruction. Evacuation orders for "146 homes in La Cañada-Flintridge and 46 homes in La Crescenta" were issued on Friday, but lifted yesterday after the storm system passed, reports KTLA. Just about a half-inch of rain fell Friday night, and while we could see some scattered showers, we aren't expecting rain again until tomorrow night. Roads closed in the Station Fire burn areas "will reopen after the threat of rain has passed and safety inspections of the roadways are completed."
