LOS ANGELES (AP) Small mud flows have begun occurring as a powerful storm drops rain on wildfire-scarred mountain slopes above two Southern California foothill cities.
Glendora police Lt. Matt Williams says one road has been closed due to debris flows Friday morning and public works crews have moved in. No property damage has been reported, however.
In Los Angeles, rising water has forced police to close major roads crossing the Sepulveda Basin. The flood-control area for the Los Angeles River on the San Fernando Valley floor that is maintained as a wildlife refuge and recreation center but kept clear of development so it can handle overflow.
The rain has also led to numerous traffic accidents, but it is otherwise welcome in the drought-stricken state.
