Return to Green Flag Alert

The City of Sierra Madre has returned to a Green Flag Alert. The County of Los Angeles Public Works Department has rescinded the Phase 1 Mudflow forecast this morning. There still the possibility of hazards as streets may become flooded or blocked by debris.

Parking restrictions have been lifted for the Upper and Lower Canyon.

Sandbags are available at the City Yards and the Fire Station. Sand is available at the City Yards location only. Residents must fill and transport their own bags.

As a reminder, this evening's Community Mudslide Meeting has been moved from Mary's Market Parking Lot to the City Council Chambers in City Hall, 232 W. Sierra Madre Blvd.

The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM and will provide information on the three-colored flag warning system, residential preparations, pet safety, and additional resources that individuals can use to help them prepare for the rain season.
