Almost all wet

We were posted at our station in San Jacinto when we noticed that the sky was getting very dark. What followed was one of the worst storms I've ever seen. Of course this means we're going to get a call. The call came out as a swift water rescue in the wash just north of town. We went tearing up there at 10 mph because of visibility. As we searched for the location the rain started to let up. What had ended up happening is the mountain slid down covering the road in 12 separate locations. There were people trapped in their cars but no injuries and no one was washed away. Since we were the primary paramedic unit we got to stay on scene until everyone got rescued (which was done via several bulldozers). Unfortunately we didn't make the news. Came close though.

I'm just glad that we didn't have to go rescue someone in that rain.
