Event

Mandatory evacuation notices remain effective as of Thursday, January 17, for portions of Los Angeles and Ventura counties due to the risk of flooding and mudslides from ongoing rainstorms. Flash flood watches and warnings issued by the US National Weather Service (NWS) also remain in effect until 13:30 (local time) on Thursday. Up to 18 cm (7 in) of rain has fallen in the area in recent days, raising the likelihood of mudslides and flooding in burn scar areas. As of Thursday morning, mandatory evacuation notices are in effect for the communities of Corral Canyon, Escondido, Latigo Canyon, Malibu West, Malibou Lake, Ramirez Canyon, Paradise Cove, and other neighboring areas. Flash flooding, mudslides, and associated transportation disruptions and infrastructure damage, including closed roads, are possible in the near-term, particularly in areas previously affected by wildfires.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, and anticipate transportation disruptions. Avoid low-lying areas near burned regions due to the risk of mudslides.
