More Storm-Related Evacuations; City Officials Urge Residents to Be Safe
There are over 1000 homes in the Station Fire burn area that are under mandatory evacuation orders this afternoon as a third severe winter storm pounds down on Southern California and poses a very serious threat of mudslides and debris flow.
LA County has just released information pertaining to additional evacuations in La Cañada Flintridge, which involve homes "situated on Ridge Cliff Lane, De Valle Road and Haskell Street.
Earlier today Mayor Villaraigosa held a press conference to discuss the City's role in the emergency response endeavors related to the weather, and urged residents to take evacuation orders and words of caution from authorities seriously.
"We could be looking at a La Conchita-type mudslide," he said, according to LA Observed. "This it not just hyperbole."
