Photos: Mudslides in La Cañada-Flintridge

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

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.
