    Super pissed. A family with a dog and a little boy were walking down 22nd st towards Y telling people to pack up and leave because the water is coming. He’s creating panic in the nighborhood and the water has not even hit 22nd and Y yet. He even spooked me a bit. So frustrated that SO many people are walking outside. There are more people out tonight than if it were just a regular monday night.

      You’re supposed to leave BEFORE the water hits.

    It’s 10 p.m. and all I hear are sirens. I think much of the commotion is due to lack of evacuation cooperation by folks living in the Zone A. Check out the 60 Pct, I think it is submerged. By the way, it takes more than a schuck with a dog to panic me. But thanks for the tip.

      I’m not sure what your comment is. Pro or anti evacuation?

    2800 east 29, two alarm fire. Multiple injuries. that is why we hear so many sirens tonight at 1002 p.m.

  • how far has the water gone? Does anyone know

      My mother, over at Manhattan Beach, told me 45 mins ago the water had gone *down* 6-12 inches. But from quite a high point.

    For the last 2 weeks It’s been a nightmare of noise that never quits on West End Avenue and Oriental Blvd.
