Dodger Stadium was hit hard by Hurricane Hilary on the weekend, with the baseball venue left surrounded by water due to flooding and the game between the home Dodgers side and the Miami Marlins rescheduled.
A video posted to X late on Sunday night taken from a helicopter flying over the stadium shows it standing in the middle of rising water. The clip, which has been viewed over 360,000 times, can be seen right below:
This marks the first time a hurricane has made landfall in California in 84 years.
Dodger manager Dave Roberts, 51, is way too young to have experienced such during his lifetime and was taken aback by the occurrence.
“This is crazy. I mean, a hurricane in Southern California, that’s very unprecedented, clearly,” he told MLB.com. “So I just want to make sure we get ahead of it, people get safe and then it passes us by.”
“This is actually the first time that tropical storm watches have been issued on the West Coast of the United States,” San Diego-based meteorologist Elizabeth Adams was quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami notes that the hurricane will downgrade to a tropical storm by the time it reaches the southern U.S. but will remain dangerous and is expected to bring “catastrophic and life-threatening” flooding.
