Sacramento (CA) Fire Department Aids Homeless Amid Record Rainfall and Flood Waters

According to a report from FOX40, the Sacramento (CA) Fire Department (SFD) are helping a number of homeless people to get to higher ground because of record flooding in the area.

According to the SFD, a power outage near Pell Drive and Pell Circle shut down sump pumps, resulting in homeless people being submerged in waist-high water.

The heavy rainfall also led the city to ask residents to not drive until 4 a.m. Monday as some roads are flooded.
