Tom Hanks, Khloe Kardashian tweet about ‘Carmageddon’

Carmageddon is upon the good people of Los Angeles, who will have to suffer through a 10-mile closure of the 405 Freeway for a whole weekend. The commuting nightmare threatens to bring the car-dependent city to its knees. Or just make people stay in their house for a couple of days.

Celebrities based in the city, like Tom Hanks, have offered their take on the event on Twitter. Check out a few tweets below:
