A sinkhole swallowed two cars in Los Angeles as a huge Pacific storm swept over southern California.

The second car fell into the sinkhole on live TV as viewers watched it teeter on the edge before plunging in.

Firefighters rescued one person from the first car, and the driver got out of the second before it fell. No one was injured.

Amateur video showed one of the cars inside the sinkhole and firefighters at the scene on Friday evening.

Other forms of travel were tough too. Amtrak canceled its rail trips for a long stretch of the state’s southern and central coast, and more than 300 arriving and departing flights were delayed or canceled at Los Angeles International Airport.
