I worked downtown LA and the Harbor freeway was know for rain build up under the overpasses. The day I was almost trapped was when I was under the largest overpass heading into down town. It was another freeway overhead.
There were any number of cars creeping through the water. I was one of the last to make it out - the cars behind me - maybe 2 - also made it out, But the ones behind them got flooded.
I can't remember when this was. Plus the tunnel under LAX hadn't been built yet so that also became flooded.
I also couldn't get to work when Sepulveda and Centinela, the 2 main cross streets going to the Marina Del Rey beach and dock - flooded.
My folks lived in Westchester above where Howard Hughes airport and plant were along Centinela. It was a plateau(sp).
I worked at a Flower Shop run by one of my fellow HS students. Loved that job. It was located at the intersction where trains ran to & from the Howard Hughes airport and company. Stopped traffic all the time and the road was the North South acess to the Marina Del Rey. I saw that being built.
Lots of memories. 8-)
