A man in California was rescued after jumping into a river to save his dog from rapids caused by severe weather.

The Los Angeles Fire Department used a helicopter to rescue the man, who suffered minor injuries, while the dog swam to safety.

The Los Angeles Fire Department Air Ops reported a man “jumped in the flowing water.”

Los Angeles is experiencing severe weather, with millions impacted by power outages, fallen trees, and flooding.

The city has responded to numerous reports of landslides and fallen trees, with thousands losing power.

The mayor’s office advised people to stay off the roads, with evacuation orders in place for certain areas at risk of flooding and mudslides due to burn scars from a previous fire.

Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass said, “Our first responders have been actively responding to this historic storm since yesterday afternoon.”

“I have spent time with our Fire Chief meeting with Angelenos impacted by the storm. The City has lept into action to protect our most vulnerable Angelenos and we will continue to work around the clock to help those in need throughout this storm,” she continued.

Temporary evacuation shelters are active in specific regions.

The Los Angeles Fire Department stated, “An evacuation order remains in effect for La Tuna Canyon Road, roughly within the area bounded by Horse Haven St. to the North, Martindale Ave. to the East, Penrose St. to the South and Ledge Ave. to the West. The area is subject to increased risk of significant flooding, mudslides, and sediment flow because of the burn scars left by the Land Fire that occurred in 2022.”
