La Tuna Canyon Road in Sun Valley is shut down tonight due to a rock and mudslide. Crews working to clear it but fear more earth may come down in heavy rains overnight. We're live at 11 @ABC7 pic.twitter.com/Tq3mzJrp2i— Jory Rand (@ABC7Jory) January 17, 2019
The area has dealt with similar issues in the past. The La Tuna Fire started about 2 miles away back in 2017, and every time there's a decent amount of rain, some of the hillsides come down.
Crews cleared the roadways and hoped for the best but preparing for the worst in the morning.
The shutdown stretched from the 210 Freeway to the north, back to Sunland Boulevard to the south.
