The following is a list of major road/freeway closures that were in effect due to a winter storm impacting the Southern California region – it’s not clear about their status Monday:

Los Angeles County:

A tree has fallen onto Laurel Canyon Road at Kirkwood Drive in the Mount Olympus area of the Hollywood Hills and shut down Laurel Canyon Road at that intersection, fire department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart says.

There are lane closures on Mulholland Highway, just north of Pacific Coast Highway, on southbound Kanan Road, two miles north of PCH and at Coral Canyon Road and PCH, all due to mud and rock slides, according to Malibu authorities.

Topanga Canyon is closed in both directions at Cheney Drive in Malibu due to downed power lines, according to Malibu authorities.

Burbank Boulevard through the Sepulveda Basin in Encino from east of the San Diego (405) Freeway to at least Balboa Boulevard has been temporarily shut down because of flooding due to heavy rains, according to authorities.

The California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert because of flooding on the Long Beach (710) Freeway at Pacific Coast Highway. All north and southbound lanes were temporarily shut down at PCH because of the flooding. Traffic was being diverted off the 710 Freeway at PCH, according to the CHP.

Riverside County:

Hostettler Road is closed between Temescal Canyon Road and Bolo Court in Corona due to flooding, according to the Riverside County Transportation Department.

Orange County:

Seal Beach police report PCH is flooded north of Seal Beach Boulevard.

Santa Ana police report flooding at Olive Avenue at 17th Street.

The SigAlert has been cancelled and the north and southbound lanes of Harbor (110) Freeway at 223rd Street have reopened after they were closed for more than three hours because of flooding, according to the California Highway Patrol.
