Water Main Break Closes Hollywood Intersection
There's trouble at Santa Monica and Highland
A water main break is causing traffic problems at Santa Monica Blvd. and Highland Ave. in Hollywood.
According to a series of tweets from Los Angeles Police Department Captain Dave Storaker, the intersection will be closed for at least several hours. ABC's Elex Michaelson later tweeted
Los Angeles has had several water main breaks this year. A break shut down Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood last month, while in July, a major pipe burst, flooding the UCLA campus by unleashing roughly 20 million gallons of water.
Check out tweets from the scene (and one creative Vine) below. We'll update with the latest photos.
