The rainy season announced its return yesterday with a steady downpour that soaked La Cañada Flintridge streets. Fortunately, no rain damage had been reported to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station as of late afternoon, though several traffic collisions on the 2 and 210 freeways were attributed by Sheriff’s deputies and California Highway Patrol officers to excessive speed on the wet roads.
No flooding or mudslides were expected, according to Sgt. Randy Tuinstra of the CV Sheriff’s station.
“Everything has been very good so far,” said Tuinstra. “All the catch basins are doing their jobs.”
Between a half-inch and an inch of rain had fallen locally as of presstime, according to multiple sources.
Jamie Bray of Descanso Gardens said that there didn’t appear to be any rain-caused problems there.
“In terms of any rain damage, we haven’t seen anything yet,” Bray said. “When the sun comes out we’ll go look at stuff and see if there’s anything out there, but so far, so good.”
