National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm with rotation capable of producing a tornado. The cell was located 5 miles south of Malibu moving north-northeast at 25 mph. It should affect Malibu and Pacific Palisades before 900 PM PST.

Here is the safety advice provided by the National Weather Service if you are in the affected areas…

If in Mobile homes or vehicles… evacuate them and get inside a substantial shelter. If no shelter is available… lie flat in the
nearest ditch or other low spot and cover your head with your hands.

….so, basically, this is the same advice that we get for earthquakes.

Duck and cover!!!!

Duck and Cover!!!
