West Coast Storm May Trigger Slides

 
Remnants of a typhoon that blasted Japan last week is approaching the California coast today and should impact the state through into the weekend. Especially vulnerable are communities downstream from areas that burned this Summer.

Some of the communities in danger include Altadena, Montrose, La Crescenta, La Canada, Sylmar, Davenport, Fillmore and Oak Glen. Parts of Santa Barbara and Monterey Counties will be on slide alert as well.

The National Weather Service has issued gale warnings and flood advisories for much of the California coast.
