Authorities have yet to say how the individuals ended up in the river. However, emergency officials have been warning homeless people camped along the riverbed to move to higher ground.

Footage of one rescue shows a man trapped in the water with a tent prior to emergency personnel pulling him out. A helicopter has also hoisted at least one person out of the Salinas River in Paso Robles.

At least two of the individuals rescued were taken to the hospital. One dog has died. The dog belonged to one of the individuals who was rescued.

In South County, there has also been at least one swift water rescue. Cal Fire crews rescued two people who were stranded at the edge of San Luis Obispo Creek in the Avila Beach area. No one was injured during the incident.

    Warned by authorities to get out. Ignore warnings and subsequently need to be rescued. No wonder they are homeless.
