LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The rain appears to be causing traffic to be backed up in parts across the Southland Wednesday.
Traffic was backed up along both the northbound lanes of the 405 Freeway, as well as the southbound lanes in West Los Angeles.
“Both directions of the 405 all the way from LAX, all the way out to the San Fernando Valley, pretty much jam packed,” reported Stu Mundel, who was flying overhead in SKY9.
Mundel said traffic was hardly moving on the Interstate 405 until the 10 Freeway.
Traffic jams were also being reported across South Los Angeles, according to KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO.
In Malibu, steady rain fell throughout the night, causing drivers to slow down along the Pacific Coast Highway.
“We have less traffic, which is nice,” said Pat Boyd, a Malibu resident. “But it’s a little tricky to drive. You have to be really careful.”
The Malibu Lost-Hills Sheriff’s station said they’ve had four rain-related accidents on roadways since about 4 p.m.
There have been no reports of mudslides or flooding in the area.
