PREPARE FOR WET WEATHER -
Heavy Rain Expected Wednesday night and Thursday
Laurel Canyon Association wanted to remind canyon dwellers to be prepared. Here are a few tips of actions you can take BEFORE THE STORM:
If necessary, obtain sand bags. Contact the Los Angeles Fire Department to find the location nearest you. (Fire Station 97 or Fire Station 41)
Check your property, clearing all private drains and rain gutters and disposing of all trash and yard clippings/trimmings in your City-issued containers.
Secure trash containers, household waste, chemical spills and outdoor storage before they are swept away, spread contamination or block storm drains.
Prepare your household to remain safe (battery powered lamps, no candles) and functional (fully charged cellphone, manual garage door operation) in the event of a storm-related power outage.
Report clogged catch basins in your neighborhood by calling the Los Angeles Stormwater Hotline at (800) 974-9794.
Move valuable or easily damaged items away from low-lying areas prone to flooding.
