Rain Storm Resource Center - SCV

2010rainstorm_1

A guide for getting through the storms.

This week's storms have brought massive amounts of rain, wind, mud and debris to streets and homes in the Santa Clarita Valley. Accidents have become more frequent, waterways have become dangerous, and evacuations have been ordered for parts of Acton. Use this page as your resource guide to help get through the storms.

Traffic updates: Check this 24-hour traffic map before you head out on the roads. TIP: Always plan extra time to get where you need to go during a rain storm. Drive slowly and carefully, put your headlights on, and brake earlier than normal.

Why this storm is different: This article explains why these storms have been so powerful; El Nino is here.

2010rainstorm_2Evacuation notices: See all evacuation notices for northern Los Angeles County (Acton, Agua Dulce, Santa Clarita, Palmdale and Lancaster.)

Dangers of waterways, washes and storm drains: Learn how much (or how little) water can be dangerous in local waterways.

Tips: Read this article with more tips on how to drive safely in the rain, as well as what to look for on your property to identify water damage.
