Glendora residents are evacuating their homes as a second storm creeps in on Southern California. Experts say the rain may create mudslides, which city and county officials fear will create safety hazards in the 2,000-acre steep terrain where the Colby Fire burned in January. 

As a precaution, the Los Angeles County Public Works Department announced the following road closures:

  • Old San Gabriel Canyon Road from the Azusa city boundary to the Angeles National Forest
  • Glendora Mountain Road from Big Dalton Road to East Fork Road in the Angeles National Forest
  • Glendora Ridge Road from Mount Baldy to Glendora Mountain Road, also in the Angeles National Forest
  • Bouquet Canyon Road will be closed in Agua Dulce from Big Oaks Lodge to two miles north of Vasquez Canyon Road at 1 a.m. Friday

The closures will be in effect until the storm passes. 

Despite the rain, a number of lane and connector closures are scheduled through the weekend. Here's where:
