The catch basins that Raymond Minassian is talking about in a letter to the editor (“Plants are growing in run-off basins,” Oct. 17) belongs to Los Angeles County Public Works. I gave them a call to pass his concern about the growing plant inside the catch basin. The city of Glendale owns 1,354 catch basins and several open channels and has two full-time workers dedicated to the city's storm drain system. We inspect and clean each one at least once per year. By the time the cleaning is completed it's possible that the drains are dirty again, way before the next cleaning cycle.

LA CRESCENTA — A rainstorm Monday caused no mudflows or flood problems in communities surrounding the burned hillsides here, but public safety officials have turned their attention to Thursday, when another storm is expected to present its own set of challenges. Although rain counts yielded more than an inch of water, including 1.4 inches in the Briggs Terrace neighborhood, those totals presented little safety threats because they came during a 12-hour period, said Bob Gregg, a local water observer for the Los Angeles County Flood Control District “It fell fairly steadily over a long period of time,” Gregg said.

The tri-city region could see storm cells capable of producing “brief heavy downpours,” hail and “dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning” Thursday evening as a weather system moves across the Southland, according to the National Weather Service.

Our family returned this week from the Bahamas. It was a trip that was a long time in coming. When we first saved up for it, then booked it, my daughter ended up in the hospital. We had to cancel, much to the disappointment of my other children. So finally everyone was healthy and off we went. We were very thankful to be going. I felt so appreciative to God for this trip, knowing he truly helped us pull it off. The first thing we did when we arrived was put on our swim suits, run to the beach, and dash into the bathtub-temperature water yelling and giggling, “The Bahamas!
