LOS ANGELES (AP) — Swift water rescue teams are stationed along a wide swath of the storm-swollen Los Angeles River for possible victims caught up in the swift current.

The Los Angeles Fire Department was notified that people may have been swept away early Wednesday at White Oak Avenue and Coldwater Canyon Avenue.

Burbank and Glendale fire department squads are also watching downstream for possible victims.

Swift water rescue squads were dispatched to river overpasses, but no one has been spotted in the concrete-line river, a 51-mile storm runoff channel to the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach.

    If you need to be told to stay away from rushing waters and river beds, maybe the gene pool can move forward without you. Rescue the body and charge the family for all of the resources the city/county used. Don’t play on the r&r tracks, don’t aim a gun at anyone, etc. When does common sense kick in?
