LOS ANGELES DODGERS
Images of flooded Dodgers Stadium stun LA fans
Hurricane Hilary has made its way to Los Angeles, and images of the Dodgers Stadium surrounded by water has fans in a panic.
If you’ve seen this image of Dodgers Stadium surrounded by floods of water and are debating its veracity, you’re not alone. After this helicopter footage came out, the stadium does indeed appear to be surrounded by quite a bit of water after storms from Hurricane Hilary. However, it may not be as bad as it appears.
In both the video and the photo, you can see that the inside of the stadium itself seems to be unaffected. Some social media users even suggest that the “flooding” is just water on asphalt. Surely the city is dealing with more rainfall than it is used to, and the threat of flooding is real in many parts of the state of California, including L.A. The stadium itself though seems to be okay for now. The parking lot is another story, and L.A. continues to be under a flash flood warning. The Dodgers decided to play a double header on Saturday to avoid having to play in poor conditions Sunday and head to Cleveland for their next series on Tuesday.
The victim was identified as 23-year-old Russian Vladimir Popov, with reports stating that the shark injured two other tourists.
A woman on an American Airlines flight made a scene ahead of takeoff before leaving the plane, claiming that a passenger in the back “isn’t real”.
