Hey everyone out there in SoCal...everyone all right? Now that the rain is gone I wanted to check in with all of you to make sure no one lost their homes or cars.

Well its still raining but is expected to end today. The Landslide in La Conchita ( Ventura County north of Los Angeles) was probably the most damageing event.

Millions and millions and millions of people in San Diego went about their usual daily routine with only having to contend with increase traffic problems and a few flooded intersections.

It wasn't too bad here either (just south of LA). Lots of traffic accidents though! I am mostly concerned about those north of LA and in the high deserts. Don, you and I were the lucky ones!

It was amazing to see all of the mud slides in Chavez Ravine. So far, things look okay. We are supposed to have one more intense storm, but right now all I can see are blue skies.

The low desert area has also been hit pretty hard. With no where for the water to go, the roads are all flooded and accidents everywhere. As if all of the flooded/closed intersections aren't bad enough, the Palm Springs International Film Festival is going on, with an added 100,000 people in town for that event. Just chaos!

Reporting in from Orange County - no damage, just lots of water! On Sunday afternoon, I was just about to look up ark-building plans!

We had a small tornado touch down here in Ventura, and fortunately, caused very little damage but was very loud. I can't imagine living in an area where tornados are frequent.
Ventura is the city just below La Conchita and they closed the freeway in mid-Ventura. It is all so sad.

It was just on the local news that a large tree has fallen on a car that was traveling on the 163 freeway near Balboa Park, and has killed 4 people.

Anyone have any news on Chatsworth/Northridge? I have a few friends located there and haven't been able to get hold of them. Just wondering what that area is like right now??

Our neighborhood got hit by the mini tornedo last week. On Sunday the water completely covered the street. We were almost ready to get out the kayaks. It's nice to start drying out.

My sweeties office in Ventura had 2 out of 12 employees show up. The rest are trapped by mudslides, downed trees, etc., in their homes or with friends. His manager there aparently lives up on a bluff that lost 5 feet of land the other day. He can't leave his home because the road is washed out.

I hope ya'll dry out soon!!!

Hi - just checkin' in - in the middle of all this RAIN! I have been recovering from the cold and flu - so I haven't been online as much. I am staying inland - about 30 miles from Palm Springs and about 40 from Los Angeles - the pouring rain has made it terribly soggy, but thank goodness we have not suffered any damage. My flu has gotten better but I now suffer from cabin fever...

I live nearby and both of those areas are okay. There may be some small-scale flooding or slides for those parts of Northridge and Chatsworth that are in the hills, but nothing drastic enough to be on the local news.

I have a small scale swamp in the landscaping just off to the side of my front door, but it will eventually dry out. I've seen some muddy roads in our neighborhoods but nothing life threatening.
