Rains pummel LA area

County > Central Avenue between 15th and post office to be closed four to six weeks

By The Staff

As a result of continued rainy weather conditions this week and the potential for flash flooding in Los Alamos Canyon, Philmont Taylor, LAPD Emergency Management has ordered the county’s Bear Camp program to vacate the Ice Rink in the canyon for the remainder of the summer camp season.
 Atomic City Transit busses transported approximately 30-35 campers out of the canyon and were safely back to the aquatic center’s training room.
Camp will continue for one more week at this alternate location at the aquatic center, which should be adequate because of the limited enrollment this time of year.
The rain caused some flooding in Los Alamos neighborhoods and also closed West Road down to the Ice Rink.
The National Weather Service also issued a flash flood warning for Southern Los Alamos County early this morning.
According to its Facebook page, Bandelier National Monument reported the creek that runs through Frijoles Canyon was at the top of its channel during the afternoon thunderstorm.
The county, meanwhile, said in a memo that Central Avenue will be fully closed between 15th and the Post Office.
