Los Angeles evacuations continue


Evacuations are still in effect for more than 500 foothill homes in Southern California even though the storm that spawned them is petering out.

Authorities say the threat of a mudslide remains in La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Acton and two canyons in the Angeles National Forest.

No major mud flows were reported from Tuesday's storm, which dumped at least an inch of rain in the area.

The communities are below slopes burned bare in wildfires. A mudslide last weekend damaged 43 homes in La Canada Flintridge.

The National Weather Service says the area will be mostly sunny for about the next seven days.

However, a couple of inches of snow could fall at higher mountain elevations and in the Antelope Valley. Winter storm warnings are effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday.
