We also ask that residents and boaters stay away from the coast as this storm moves in. Also, as a reminder, please stay away from LA County waterways and river channels during and after storms. Swift-moving water can be dangerous.

Let’s do our best to be careful and considerate of each other on the road and in our communities. My office along with your LA County teams are here to provide support and will keep you posted on updates and resources.
