Residents of the Foothill communities whose sodden hillsides threatened to give can go home now, although the threat of mudslides still looms, KTLA is reporting. "Authorities canceled evacuation orders for La Cañada-Flintridge, La Crescenta, Acton, Soledad Canyon and Aliso Canyon around 8:00" this morning. Evacuations in Sierra Madre were lifted last night.

While we're not likely to see anything more than perhaps some sprinkling of rain today, "the risk of slides along burn zones remains for 72 hours after a storm," officials warn residents of the affected areas. Public Works crews and homeowners will have the chance to assess damage and put into place any further precautionary measures deemed necessary while we enjoy a warming trend over the next few days and a break from torrential rain.
