Flooding on Pineridge Road due to storm drain

Around 2 p.m. this afternoon (Sunday), the 5300 block of Pineridge Road was blocked off as Los Angeles County firefighters and workers from Los Angeles County Department of Public Works responded to a call of flooding.

When they arrived they found the flooding occurred not because of full debris basins but due to debris trapped in a storm drain.

Neighbors reported that the water had backed up into street causing some very nervous moments.  Workers removed a mesh netting from the drain and the water began flowing again.

Members of the L.A. County Fire Department filled sand bags and as a precaution, put them around a resident’s garage and driveway.
