Just saw this Tweet: https://twitter.com/MontroseSAR/status/1612502167960846336?s=20

Take a look at the tweets, but basically a group of hikers was stuck between two rising rivers in CA last night (see all the rain happening out there.). Person in the group had a "beacon" (assume PLB) which was activated and it sounds like search and rescue did an outstanding job getting everyone out.

PLBs and SAR for the win!

PS - Screwed up posting this...sorry if it goes up twice somehow.
