Full Notification

LASD - Los Angeles County Sheriffs Dept Information Bureau (SIB)
Monday January 14th, 2019 :: 08:39 p.m. PST



Unified Command has identified properties in the Woolsey fire burn area that may be subject to a high volume of mud and debris flow. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department personnel will be out this evening to give residents at the identified properties advance evacuation notice. Mandatory evacuations will begin TOMORROW, TUESDAY, JANUARY 15th at 8:00 a.m.
Specific properties in the following areas will receive door-knock notification and posted notice at their residence this evening and again tomorrow morning;

  • Corral Canyon / El Nido
  • Escondido / Old Chimney
  • Escondido Drive / Latigo Canyon
  • Malibu West / Trancas Canyon
  • Malibou Lake
  • All of Ramirez Canyon Road and adjacent streets
  • Paradise Cove Mobile Home Park & Restaurant
The areas identified above are at high risk for potential mud and debris flow. These properties are adjacent to steep slopes or are located at the base of drainage areas.
Not all properties may be directly affected by mud and debris flow, however all roads in the area are subject to closure and residents may have limited access in and around the evacuated communities.
Los Angeles County Sheriffs have established patrols to monitor evacuated neighborhoods for looting and to ensure public safety.
All Woolsey Fire burn areas continue to be subject to possible evacuations. County public safety authorities are issuing these additional precautions: 
  • Communities in low-lying areas or next to steep slopes or waterways are particularly at-risk of falling debris and mud flow.
  • Residents living in homes with limited roadway access or that can become isolated for an extended period due to the storm should consider leaving before storms arrive.
  • Homes or neighborhoods with gates should consider leaving them open to avoid being trapped due to mud flow accumulation; even one-inch of mud can restrict gate operations.
  • If your property becomes unsafe and there is no time to evacuate, seek safe high- ground.
  • Do not attempt to cross flooded areas and never enter moving water.
  • Since all canyon roads may be blocked and subject to closure for extended periods, residents should have enough food, water, medication and supplies for at least 7 to 10 days for all family members, including pets and large animals.
Large Animals will be accepted at Pierce College starting at 8:00 a.m. 6201 Winnetka Avenue, Woodland Hills, CA  91371
