Evacuation Orders in Effect for LA County Foothill Communities
Posted March 1st, 2014 @ 5:35pm by KFBK News

Evacuation orders remain in effect for hundreds of homes in Los Angeles County foothill communities where fires have burned away vegetation that holds soil in place, and bursts of rain caused the mountains to belch occasional debris flows.

The storm marked a sharp departure from many months of drought that has grown to crisis proportions for the state's vast farming industry. However, weather forecasters have said such storms would have to become common to make serious inroads against the drought.
