You run in your house and have less than an hour to assess everything you own. Pick up anything you want over 9 ft. Locate all your pictures, paperwork, firearms and start roping boats to anchors by front door for way to get back to road.
I'm not leaving. Watching water creep up inches per hour. Phones haven't worked since yesterday. AT&T turned off towers except for emergency personnel. Posting from my work Jetpack right now standing under carport watching what was a front yard look like a small river.

Stay safe. Dont let Alligators bite your legs off. And in case of a Sharknado.. do whatever they did in those movies, I never seen em.

Still here, water is less than 2 ft from destruction, supposed to crest right over a foot more by 7am. Have walked miles up and down current sand bagging neighbors doors and lifting fridges up. Floated a 19 ft aluminum skid and tied to the porch, it'll be our only way out. Still have power and BBQ pit is going.
Trains of out of state rescue people are here with 4x4s and boats getting people out. Thank them much for the support. It's almost dark now and fk getting back in this river water. River monsters have to be in it looking for safety.
We are 3 men left behind with houses all sleeping in the highest one. in typical LA style, armed like it's COD. Ain't be no looting round hur.

We stayed until Tuesday, mine was the last one to take water in. Called for boat rescue to come get us.
Moved back to parents until we figure out what to do. Saved the PS3s lol

This is the road next to mine, 3-7ft of water went through us over 2 days then sat for 2 more. Smells like fish asshole everywhere.

I've been working less than 2 miles from my house every day. Haven't even made it to the big subdivision areas. They say it looks like a war zone, every single house gutted back to the studs.

Funny you mentioned something about pick up trucks. Part of life, would have never noticed them otherwise. Men drive trucks, guys drive anything else.

Pretty amazing, actually seeing the aftermath. I can't even imagine how that's gotta feel. Is looting actually a problem, or are you just covering your bases? I guess there are shitty enough people that it's a possibility, but man, that's the lowest of the low.
