In recent times, a video depicting flooding at Storm Hilary’s Stadium has caught the attention of many viewers. This video seems to show the stadium engulfed in water, giving rise to concerns about the effects of severe weather.
However, appearances can sometimes be misleading, and a closer look reveals that things might not be exactly as they seem.
In this article, we will delve into the intricacies of the video and explore the truth behind the apparent flooding, shedding light on the real story behind the sensational footage.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are helping to clear up confusion after a big storm called Tropical Storm Hilary passed through their area.
People who use social media might have seen that Dodger Stadium was really popular online on Sunday. There were pictures and videos that made it seem like the parking lot and the area around it were underwater. But that wasn’t actually true.
The shiny and wet parking lot made it look like there was water everywhere, but it was just a trick of the light.
The Dodgers wrote on social media to correct the misunderstanding. They said,
“Lots of talk about Dodger Stadium? We understand. It looks very nice this morning.”
The message had pictures of the baseball field and parking lot, and they looked quite dry.
Whenever a big event like Tropical Storm Hilary happens in Southern California, people hurry to social media to show what’s going on from every side.
But when so many people are excited, it can be easy to find information that isn’t right.
Karen North, a teacher who knows about social media at USC, explained,
“When something as big as a hurricane, or part of it, comes to Los Angeles, everyone wants to show the most surprising version or talk about it.”
Some videos were posted on social media that pretended to show rides at Universal Studios, but they had wrong words on them to fool people. Another video on social media tried to make people believe that the Metro Wilshire/Vermont station was covered in water. However, the L.A. Metro company said the video wasn’t true.
“Look at where the information comes from. If a trusted news source shares pictures, they’re more likely to be true than if someone with a Twitter account or an Instagram account puts something there.”
The Dodger Stadium incident teaches us to be cautious online. Things aren’t always what they seem, and misleading info can spread fast, especially during big events like storms. Remember, trustworthy sources matter more than flashy posts. Stay smart online!
