There is the potential for mud & debris flows in these areas. Residents 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 it or drive a vehicle through it, shelter in place or avoid for your safety.
Country Club Drive above Via Montana is experiencing flooding, heavy debris and water flow, and mudslide activity, warranting the closure of Country Club Drive. The water flow has displaced parked vehicles and created a hazardous and potentially dangerous environment. Burbank Police Officers are on-scene along with Public Works. Residents are asked to stay indoors for now and listen for any further instruction.
Walnut Avenue at Sunset Canyon is CLOSED for now.
Harvard Road at Sunset Canyon is CLOSED for now.
The Stough Nature Center is CLOSED for now.
