The Latest: Some evacuation orders lifted in California

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on a Southern California storm that raised flood fears in burn areas (all times local):

10:30 p.m.

Authorities are keeping a worried eye on fire-scarred hillsides in Southern California after a storm brought flooding fears and prompted evacuation orders for hundreds of homes.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for Los Angeles-adjacent counties ravaged by a summer wildfire. Evacuation orders remain in place Friday for Trabuco Canyon in Orange County and for several neighborhoods in the Lake Elsinore area east of Los Angeles. Other Elsinore areas had the mandatory evacuations downgraded to voluntary evacuation warnings as the storm eased.

Forecasters say it will be warmer and drier before another storm moves in next week.

Thursday’s storm brought record-breaking rainfall to downtown Los Angeles, jammed major roads with mud, rain or snow and sent a landing airliner skidding off a runway.
