Storm-Related Road Closures
Benedict Canyon Road Portion Remains Local Access only
A "soft closure" with access limited to local residents-only continues, due to a collapsing roadway: Benedict Canyon from Mulholland Drive to Hutton Drive (see map). An alternate is Deep Canyon Drive.
(From Caltrans) 405 North Freeway Exit Remains Closed
The northbound off-ramp to Skirball Center Drive and Mulholland Drive remains closed to repair a sinkhole. Check Quickmap for updates.
Stretch of Mulholland to Remain Closed
Due to severe road damage -- at four locations -- a portion of Mulholland Drive has been closed to through traffic between Skyline Drive and Bowmont Drive (see map). Estimates for repair timing are ongoing; closure is expected to last a number of weeks.
LA's Department of Transportation advises to still avoid canyon roads, if possible, as some settlement and further hillside movement is still likely.
As of 5 AM, February 22, the National Weather Service-Los Angeles holds these near-term projections, as they apply to LA City and nearby County areas:
"A warming and drying trend through tomorrow as offshore flow develops. Breezy to locally gusty Santa Anas could [also] develop. Another storm system will bring rain and mountain snow to the region early next week. Gusty winds could develop across the mountains on Sunday and Monday as the storm moves over the region."

Countywide Damage Survey
Completing this online survey will help LA County collect information on estimated business- or home owner repair costs from early February rainstorm damage. The data will be used to determine if cumulative damages are enough to qualify for federally-funded, individual disaster assistance. Completing this form does not guarantee eligibility. However, it is the first step the County must take.
Sizeable storms are now an LA City "thing" . . . so, expect more rain this winter and prepare!

Signs of a Slide
Listen AND watch for other signs: mud buildup at the base of hills, widening cracks in outside walls or paved areas, sticking doors, broken utility lines, and pooling ground water.
