That can be a real challenge for homeowners and businesses in the coming months.
The National Weather Service has warned of a “major” flood threat to the Los Angeles area this summer.
The agency released a map of the region, which shows the Los Angelas River rising to more than six feet above normal.
This could happen as early as September.
It is estimated the flood threat will grow to the point where Los Angeles will have to evacuate its downtown, the city’s most densely populated area.
Residents in the city are advised to prepare to evacuate in the following areas:Los Angeles, Long Beach, Longview, South Los Angeles, South Pasadena, the South Bay and downtown L.A.
There are also warnings to stay at least 10 feet away from all sources of water, including rivers, streams, and lakes.
Here is a map showing the area that is expected to be impacted by the major flood threat this summer:The flood danger is expected on a “moderate” to severe scale, with a maximum flood risk of 6 feet.
