Echo Park is all wet*

Traffic lights out at Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue

Some traffic lights are out on Sunset Boulevard , storm drains are backing up and water is puddling up everywhere in Echo Park.  In addition to traffic signal problems, about 1,600 LADWP customers in Echo Park are without power. So, what else do you expect when it rains in L.A.?
