Anastasia Mann, President of the Hollywood Hills West Neighborhood Council, alerts me that:
Any hillside streets marked for Red Flag Day parking restrictions will have cars towed today. This is the FIRST day that the Red Flag (wind related) warnings are in effect for the CITY of Los Angeles.
Prior to towing, LAFD (the Fire Dept) will attempt to locate vehicle owners/drivers. However they do not have to do this to tow the vehicle.
In short, this means that the combination of Santa Ana winds and dry atmosphere make us at higher risk for fires, and moving cars from the Red Flag zones will allow fire crews easier access in the case of trouble.
