The latest from Carolyn Seitz:

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works has released the following information and forecast.

For the Altadena burn areas:

RAINFALL Between 4:00 am Tuesday and 4:00 am Wednesday, rainfall is predicted to be 2.6 inches.

FLOODING, MUD & DEBRIS FLOWS Because of the possibility that the burn areas may already have reached saturation, the potential for flooding, mud and debris flows in and below the burn areas is greater.

It has been recommended that emergency response entities monitor certain areas of La Crescenta, La Canada/Flintridge, East Sierra Madre, and Altadena where the potential for mud and debris flows is greater.  Streambeds and water courses will be subject to mud and debris flows.

ROAD CLOSURES Road closures in the Angeles National Forest remain in effect.   The Chaney Trail gate remains closed.

EVACUATIONS The Millard Canyon Campground remains under an evacuation order by Angeles National Forest.

Additional information will be provided when available.
