Skaters at Los Altos Skate Park got quite a surprise when they came to the park on Sunday.

Saturday’s heavy rains filled bowls meant for skating with more than five feet of water.

There are drains at the bottom of each bowl, but they were clogged with dirt.

"It’s an unusual situation because we've had so much rain and apparently the drainage system is not accommodating not only the water, but the dirt that's inside of there," says skater Roberto Cruz.

Skaters say this happened a few weeks ago, but there was more water this time around.

Trash and even a dead bird were found floating in the water.
