Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 10:52 AM PST Jan. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Oxnard has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Los Angeles County in southwestern California including the
recent burn areas...

* until 445 PM PST Friday

* at 1040 am PST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
moderate to heavy rain overspreading Los Angeles County, with even heavier
rainfall to the west across Ventura County. Rainfall rates between
one quarter and three quarters of an per hour will be common across Los
Angeles County through this afternoon, with local rates up to one inch
per hour near thunderstorms and heavier shower bands.

The heavier rain will cause widespread ponding of water on area roadways
and local flooding of low lying areas and intersections as well as
small streams and creeks. There will be a significant threat of mud and
Rockslides, especially along canyon roadways. The heavy rainfall will also
cause a significant increase in water flow through some of the rivers
and streams. Minor mud and debris flows will be possible in the vicinity
of the recent burn areas.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Move away from creeks, streams, and rivers. The heavy rains
will likely trigger Rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around burn areas.

especially for drivers of high profile vehicles. Major
roadways that could be affected include highways 14 and 138.

downed trees.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Special Statement
Issued: 7:11 AM PST Jan. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Threat of strong thunderstorms with potential for locally
damaging wind gusts... heavy downpours... small hail... and isolated
waterspouts today across southwest California...

A strong upper level jet stream combined with increasing
instability will bring a chance of thunderstorms today across
southwest California... especially this afternoon. The greatest
threat of thunderstorms will be across Ventura and Los Angeles
counties as well as the adjacent coastal waters. Some of these
thunderstorms could be strong... with the main threats being
locally damaging winds that could down trees and power lines as
well as brief heavy downpours causing localized roadway flooding.
In addition... any thunderstorm that develops today will be capable
of producing small hail and dangerous cloud to ground
lightning... including beach areas.

Conditions are also favorable for isolated waterspouts across
the coastal waters... especially south of Ventura. Remember that
waterspouts do have the potential to come ashore as weak tornados
across coastal communities. The threat of strong thunderstorms
is expected to diminish by tonight.
