A meeting for residents in the burn areas of the Sayre, Sessnon-Marek and Station Fire areas will be held tonight in Porter Ranch to address concerns about debris flows caused by the current rain.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Shepherd of the Hills Church, 19700 Rinaldo Street in Porter Ranch. Officials from the Los Angeles Emergency Management Department, LAPD, LAFD, Los Angeles County Public Works and LA City Engineering will be on hand to answer questions and distribute materials to help the residents deal with any floods or debris.
The meeting is the result of a partnership between the City and County of Los Angeles to help those affected by the fire and subsequent damage. Damage from the fires has left hillsides and large areas of land susceptible to flooding and debris flows after it rains.
Information will be given out to assist residents in having a readiness and evacuation plan to help reduce the possibility of injury, property damage, or even death. Maps indicating the path a flood or debris flow might take will also be available.
