Homes in the City of Glendale located high in the hills in the La Crescenta area have been ordered evacuated as a third serious rainstorm descends on Southern California, LA Now is reporting. 340 homes are at risk from flash floods, and residents "have been told to leave their homes by 9 a.m."

These homes are located on Markridge Road between New York and Boston avenues; Dunsmore Avenue south to Santa Carlotta Street; Frederick Avenue south to Burritt Way; and all of Quail Canyon, Rim Hill, Cheryl Avenue and Frances Street. [map]

A shelter has been set up by the Red Cross at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Glendale officials said they may have to order further evacuations "as the storm progresses,” and urge residents there to be prepared to heed those orders immediately.
