Fire Department Called in for Around 500 Incidents Today Already
Since 12 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department has been called in for 475 incidents (as of publish, it's probably around 500). Traffic collisions, flooding and other trouble caused by the rain (and every day events like medical calls) are part of that number. On average, there are 1,100 incidents per day, so this is nothing unusual for a rainy day, according to LAFD officials.
Many calls, such as the flooding seen in the above photo, can be dealt with by calling the city's 24-hour operator service, 3-1-1. If life or property is in danger, a 9-1-1 call would be warranted.
