• Mandatory Evacuations in Sierra Madre


    by Winston Chua

    Sierra Madre Tuesday night issued mandatory evacuationorders to residents of 300 homes to evacuate their properties and find lodgingwith friends or evacuation centers. Via E-blasts, flag systems, message boardsand television announcements, the City looks to move their residents to safety.

    Because L.A. County took the City when it declared a stateof emergency, Sierra Madre does not have to make such a declaration for itself.La Canada and La Crescenta are also included.

    Before being included in L.A. County’s declaration, SierraMadre in January declared a state of emergency because of heavy rains. Suchdeclarations mean the City can get assistance with personnel, equipment andpossible grant money, to clean out basins and streets, for example.

    Residents in Sierra Madre were just weeks ago givenofficially permission from the City to return to their homes. But that wasbefore the recent onslaught of more mud and debris flows. Residents of SierraMadre were evacuated in 2008 in the Santa Anita fire, one year before beingevacuated in the 2009 Station Fire.
