IN Brief

Mt. Baldy Declared State of Emergency
On Sunday, thunderstorms caused mudslides in the Mt. Baldy area of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties that damaged homes and roads and led to the death of one person. On a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously declared a local state of emergency for the Mt. Baldy area. This action directs county departments to implement all response, mitigation, restoration and recovery efforts.

As the extent of the damage is assessed and thresholds are met, this declaration will waive regulations which may hinder response and recovery efforts, make recovery assistance available under the California Disaster Assistance Act and enable access to applicable federal, state and local resources and disaster relief assistance.

The declaration also instructs the Chief Executive Office to provide status reports every 60 days while the emergency response activities are underway.
