Those living in California are experiencing quite the unfortunate weather at the moment. The Golden State is currently facing a record amount of rain, causing local residents to deal with the consequences.
It looks as though even sea lions in the area are being affected by the downpour. The Los Angeles Times
reports that the Pacific Marine Mammal Center
(PMMC) was forced to move three of their sea lions to another rehabilitation facility.
Melissa Sciacca, the nonprofit's development director, took the time to speak with the news source to reassure concerned citizens that the marine creatures are doing fine.
"The animals are safe," she told the news outlet.
Authorities discovered Wednesday morning that the the living area of the seals, which are comprised of two northern elephant pups as well as one California sea lion, was flooded with around four feet of water.
According to its website, the PMMC is an organization committed to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of marine life along Orange County's coastline. They also aim to educate the public about the expansive sea environment.
