MALIBU (CBSLA) — “My compliments to the community for staying away from the beaches,” tweeted Michel Moore, the Chief of the LAPD.
Moore on Saturday shared images of the empty beaches from Malibu to Venice to Dockweiler.
“Safer at home will get us there sooner,” he added.
This was despite an ongoing heat wave hitting the region.
Elsewhere, in Huntington Beach, thousands flocked to the sand, with many appearing to practice social distancing.
