A second wave of rain is headed L.A.'s way tomorrow and the County of Los Angeles is preparing for the worst in the foothill neighborhoods. All county roads within the Station Fire burn area are expected to be closed to public access beginning Friday at 4 p.m., the Department of Public Works announced today. As the deadline approaches, officials will confirm the closures, pending the immediate weather. Evacuation also may be ordered to residents living in at-risk burn areas. Additionally, "No Parking During Rain Event" restrictions will be enforced in La Canada Flintridge and La Crescenta. 43 homes were damaged by mudslides in early February.
