Southern California neighborhoods worry about storm

A meeting tonight in Sylmar drew concerned citizens, looking for ways to prepare for possible damage from the expected storm.

Less than two months after wildfires tore through several areas, destroying brush and homes, the rains threaten even more damage from potential mudslides,

Thursday night, mountain residents asked officials who met with them at Sylmar Charter High School for plans to protect their homes and their lives.

City councilwoman Monica Rodriguez said that the city is placing K-rails to protect homes from potential slides, and crews moved massive piles of dirt to stop debris flows in fire areas.

Those areas were hit by the La Tuna fire, the Creek fire The Skirball fire and areas of Ventura affected by the Thomas fire.

Zohreen Adamjee was at the Thursday night meeting.
