Umbrellas came out as stormy weather rolled through Burbank today. The rain may be spotty this afternoon, but don’t let your guard down. The heaviest part of this spring storm is expected to pound the Southland tonight and much of tomorrow. Voluntary evacuations have been issued for some areas at risk in the Media City beginning at 8 p.m. tonight and running through 6 pm tomorrow. Go here for the list.
Residents in those areas are advised that if they do not evacuate “… public safety services may not be able to reach them in an emergency due to impassable roads. If you see significant mud, debris or fast-flowing water, do not try to cross or drive a vehicle through it, shelter in place, or avoid for your safety. Please use caution even after the rain has stopped as mud and debris can lead to a dangerous situation.”
Meanwhile, “no parking” signs went up this morning and will remain until 8 am on Friday, March 23, on the following streets.
–Country Club Drive east of Via Montana
–All of Hamline Place
–Groton Drive east of Kenneth
–Bel Aire Drive from Cambridge Drive to Vista Ridge
