They were Avenue H-2 between 23rd and 25th Streets West, south of the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds; Avenue K between 50th and 57th Streets West; and Avenue J between 62nd and 70th Streets West. “Most of it was pretty minor,” Lancaster Public Works Director Randy Williams said. “We had a couple of downed trees. One stop sign went down.” Fire officials said the storm contributed to a number of minor car collisions. “It was the normal car wrecks,” Palmdale Battalion Chief Don DeYoung said. DeYoung said firefighters did respond to a leaky roof in an apartment. “We did a little bit of water removal,” he said. The storm from Sunday and Monday dumped .82 inches of rain on Lancaster, .59 inches in Palmdale, and 1.38 inches in Acton, according to the National Weather Service.

Weather might have been a factor in a three-vehicle crash on state Route 58 in Mojave on Monday that killed a 75-year-old Minnesota man and injured five others. George Rosenau, 75, of Circle Pines, Minn., was fatally injured when a transit bus crashed into his car and another car that were stopped in traffic because of an earlier accident, the California Highway Patrol said. In Lake Los Angeles, Frontier Circus Street was closed between Avenue P-8 and Stagecoach Avenue because of flooding, Los Angeles County public works officials said. The street should open today.

Access to some roads in the Wrightwood area was restricted due to snow and rock slides, said Ken Pellman, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. “We had to clear up mud and rocks on canyon roads. There was for instance minor slides along Lake Hughes Road along areas hit by storms a year ago,” Pellman said. “It was minor stuff. We fared pretty well.” Palmdale officials said there were a few downed trees, and crews spent Tuesday looking for and repairing potholes. “All our issues were fairly minor. We dodged the bullet,” said Tim Hughes, Palmdale’s public works deputy director. “We did have silted up intersections and a few lane closures.” last_img
