Sunland: 'Below-Water Village'

As you have heard on the news, over 700 residents have been or are in the process of being evacuated from their homes in the Sunland-Tujunga community. There is potential for even more evacuations.

Check the STNC web site for live links to local Facebook and Twitter contacts as well as City, news media and weather resources.

The Sunland Park Evacuation Center is open for our neighbors and the Red Cross is there.

First Responders -- LAPD, LAFD and others are at North Valley City Hall. If you would like to volunteer snacks and coffee for our First Responders, please drop off at North Valley City Hall (NVCH) or call the STNC office at 818-951-7411 to arrange. STNC Board members and community leaders are on site at NVCH and out in the community assisting where we can.

First Responders  are being proactive and taking every  precaution.  If you are asked to evacuate, please do so.  This is a critical time for our community.

The Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council is standing by to help as needed.  We realize that this e-mail will not get out to everyone so please pass it along and keep in contact with your neighbors.
