Continue to avoid Sepulveda near LAX

Some extra info on street closures hereabouts, following the explosion that killed a firefighter and injured others. We were told traffic would be allowed through at noon, but that clearly hasn't happened.

Sepulveda Blvd. is still mostly shut down roughly between Century and Manchester. Many local businesses are still without power (one medical building had a portable generator running out on the sidewalk) and although you can *cross* Sepulveda at some points, the traffic lights are also out, and there are people directing traffic in the intersections. The intersection at Sepulveda/La Tijera is closed all directions, even to foot traffic, so my lunch walk was curtailed.
