 EXCEPT FOR SUNSHINE, LOS ANGELES TOURISM ATTRACTIONS INTACT
 DESPITE RECORD-BREAKING STORMS
 LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite record-breaking rain storms that have drenched the area over the last week, no Southern California hotels, transportation systems, or visitor attractions have reported damage or disruption in service, according to the Los Angeles Convention & Visitors Bureau.
 Most of the flooding has been in the San Fernando Valley area 15 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, a section of the city composed mainly of park and residential areas. The closest major hotel to the flood area is the Valley Hilton, a 215-room property which has not been affected by the rising waters.
 Major area amusement parks -- Universal Studios in Hollywood, Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm -- are not reporting any disruptions in service. Six Flags Magic Mountain is now on seasonal hours through spring and is not reporting any damage.
 Area beaches are closed from Point Magu to Long Beach due to the storms. Officials said they expect to reopen by the middle of next week if the rains subside.
 Canyon areas and parts of Malibu near the J. Paul Getty Museum are reporting mudslides, however, the famed art institution is said to be in no danger. Parts of the Pacific Coast Highway are closed due to rockslides, but crews said the road is expected to completely reopen today.
 Flights into Los Angeles International Airport are also said to be unaffected, although delays may be expected. Rail service north to Santa Barbara was briefly delayed yesterday, but has now resumed normal scheduling. All major highways into the Los Angeles area are now open.
 The current batch of storms has dropped a record 9 inches of rain. Normal rainfall for the entire year is 9.5 inches. Total rainfall this year to date is 12 inches.
