The break sent thousands of gallons of water flowing down Cahuenga Boulevard, where it was pooling at the intersection with Odin Street. The water was at least three feet deep.
The water flooded the garages of apartment buildings and homes in the area. Several properties suffered damaged. The garage door of one building buckled.
Some trucks attempted to navigate the intersection, even as the water rose above their headlights. other drivers turned around.
“I’ve got a big pickup truck, so I think I can maneuver through about two feet, three feet, but not four feet,” resident Mars Collins told CBSLA. “That looks like four or five right there. We’ll see how it goes.”
