STORM SOAKS ROADS, SHUTS DOWN STREETS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

A BMW is halfway submerged in floodwaters on the northbound 5 Freeway at Lankershim Boulevard in Sun Valley on Friday, Feb. 17, 2017.
Several Southern California roads were shut down due to the storm conditions.

  • Both sides of the 5 Freeway at Sheldon Street in Sun Valley were temporarily shut down as big rigs and other vehicles struggled to move through floodwaters on the road. By Friday night, one lane was back open in each direction, Caltrans officials said.

  • Burbank police also closed the northbound Buena Vista on-ramp to the 5 Freeway due to flooding. It was unclear how long the closure would last. Traffic was reduced to two lanes on the northbound 5 at Alameda Avenue in Burbank due to a sink hole on the highway.
