The rainstorm that settled in over Southern California overnight and early this morning has been "dumping steady rain," and has caused the "flooding [of] some roads but so far causing no major mudslides," according to LA Now. About .8 of an inch of rainfall was logged by 4 a.m. in downtown, however we can expect "1-2 inches of rain before the storm moves out" tonight. A flash flood advisory has been issued for the burn areas of the Station Fire, and residents of those foothill communities are once again on alert for possible mudslides and debris flow from nearby basins. So far those basins "appeared to be holding." Though evacuation orders were issued yesterday, many residents have opted to remain in their homes and keep close tabs on the situation.

Flooding has caused some road closures, including "a portion of the 710 Freeway at Florence Avenue," as well as "in the Sepulveda basin area" and "in many parts of the Angeles National Forest."
