LOS ANGELES (KABC) — An apparent water main break Wednesday morning flooded a Hollywood neighborhood with several feet of water, submerging cars and prompting the rescue of some people who were trapped.

The flooding began overnight on Cahuenga Boulevard near Odin Street, just off Highway 101.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, at least two cars were submerged in 4 to 5 feet of water and two people were rescued. No injuries were reported. Structures in the area were not compromised, authorities said.

The same area has already been flooded several times – in January and also in 2020.

Drivers in the area were forced to turn back as streets in the area were closed.
