The Allegria Hotel in Long Beach is without power, the first two floors were evacuated, and guests were told to either remain in their rooms or stay in a makeshift meeting room on the third floor, a reporter for News 12 said at 8 p.m. Monday.
The ocean waters flooded the street outside the hotel, West Broadway, and was at a level of about five feet high at the townhouses across the street, the reporter said.
The news crew said that about 7 p.m. Monday, everyone had left the boardwalk. But some people went to the hotel for dinner but got stuck there due to the flooding.
