From the Los Angeles Times:
Homes in Glendale, La Crescenta, La Cañada Flintridge and Tujunga are at risk for mudslides in a rainstorm. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the canyon areas mapped below could spill damaging amounts of mud and debris into heavily populated areas if rains fall for 12 hours at a time when debris-retention basins are full. Mudslides can also occur with less rain when basins are not full.
