• Short Summary

    Dramatic scenes of raging floods in California as the North Hollywood Bridge falls down.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CALIFORNIA FLOODS".

    California, United States of America.

    Several shots of severely flooded streets in the areas around Los Angeles. Surging water flows down the streets; some people watch the water flow past; a house undermined by water has toppled over and covered in water up to the roof. Raging water floods down a road; an upturned, wrecked car is in the middle of the street; a railway track and bridge has been split in two.

    High angle shots of the Long Beach area, almost completely underwater. Cars in a street are covered in water up to their roofs. Dramatic shot of the North Hollywood Bridge crumbling and falling into the raging water passing beneath it. People in sou'westers watch in disbelief.
