Photos taken this morning showing some of the property damaged by the mudslides and debris flows that took place in the early morning hours at the top of Ocean View Boulevard in La Cañada-Flintridge [map]. The hillsides, burned by last summer's Station Fire, were saturated by heavy rain, and at least one catch basin in the area overflowed. Residents describe being awoken by thunderous noise and witnessing walls of water and mud cascading through their community and homes. No one was injured, and residents are evacuating with the help of Los Angeles County Firefighters.
