Evacuation Orders Cancelled

Foothill residents received some good news Wednesday. Authorities canceled all mandatory evacuation orders issued to the residents of more than 500 homes in La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta and Acton, below the Station Fire burn area.

With the storm that hit the Southland Tuesday having cleared out, Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Mark Savage said the evacuation orders were lifted as of 8 a.m. They affected 247 homes in La Canada Flintridge, 224 in La Crescenta, and 56 in Acton, Soledad Canyon and Aliso Canyon.

Although Interstate 5 in the area of The Grapevine was dry as of 8 a.m., National Weather Service meteorologists said there could still be snow flurries this morning in the Antelope Valley and parts of the San Gabriel Mountains.

"We still have a very unstable air mass," said NWS spokesman Bill Hoffer, adding that all remnants of the storm should have cleared out by noon. The Weather service also advised drivers to be watchful of black ice and blowing snow.
