Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch, High Surf Advisory
Issued: 10:48 AM PST Jan. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory remains in effect until
245 PM PST for Los Angeles County...

At 1035 am PST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
moderate to locally heavy rain across the western portion of the
County, while the remainder of Los Angeles County was receiving
light to moderate rainfall. The heavier rainfall rates of around a
quarter inch per hour will overspread the entire County late this
morning into this afternoon. With rainfall rates this high, expect
Urban and Small Stream flooding in the advisory area. Hourly
rainfall rates are expected to increase up to a third to a half inch
per hour with up to around an inch per hour in the higher
elevations. The heavier rain will likely cause widespread ponding of
water on area roadways and local flooding of low lying areas and
intersections. There will also be the continued threat of rock and
mudslides, especially across canyon roadways. Try to avoid driving
across canyons roads today. Minor mud and debris flows are likely to
occur across the recent burn areas including the sand and fish burn
areas. Stay away from flood channels, streams, and rivers as waters
will rise rapidly today. If rainfall rates reach or exceed one inch
per hour, there will be the likelihood of widespread flooding or
flash flooding.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Long Beach... Seal Beach... Malibu... Lake Los Angeles... Acton...
Wrightwood... Rancho Palos Verdes... Whittier... North Hollywood...
Redondo Beach... Torrance... Pasadena... Woodland Hills...
Griffith Park... Culver City... downtown Los Angeles... Inglewood...
Palmdale... Santa Monica... and San Dimas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

* Surf... on west facing beaches... surf of 8 to 10 feet will lower

shore. If tired... float or tread water until out of the rip
current. If unable to escape... face the shore and call or wave
for help.
