L.A. County has received more than 1,500 pothole requests since Jan. 9.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KABC) -- As Southern California prepares for a third storm, street crews are out filling potholes as fast as possible.

"Currently right now since the 9th we have received a total of 1,542 requests, pothole requests, and that's just since Monday," said Michael Cox, Superintendent at the L.A. Bureau of Street Services.

Crews were able to fulfill more than 700 requests before Friday.

The last two storms have affected road conditions across L.A. County.

On Thursday, L.A. County's asphalt plant was not in service so crews had to use a cold mixture to fill in potholes instead of hot asphalt.

The plant was up and running like usual Friday morning.

If you'd like to submit a pothole request you can call 311 or go on the MYLA311 app.

Cox says crews are working overtime to fulfill pothole requests to catch up.
