UPDATE AS OF NOVEMBER 15, 2018
****Topanga WILL NOT BE REPOPULATED TODAY****
LACoFD and LASD have deemed that conditions are still too unsafe to allow residents to return.
TCEP is working on getting information about when the canyon will be opened and will be meeting this afternoon with LACoFD and LASD Command to discuss repopulation.
Evacuation orders are not taken lightly. Safety for the community is the no. 1 priority. Evacuation orders are complex decisions and are not just a question of looking at fire & weather.
