Water Damage Los Angeles, CA
Toward the end of the night a central water main damaged a road and a few homes early Friday after the fountain of water stirred up occupants who were in shock overnight thinking a rain storm had landed in Southern California.Utility groups stopped the water to several households within the Halkirk Street – south of Ventura Boulevard and east of Coldwater Canyon Avenue – after the 8-inch main break at around 2 a.m. sent a tower of water above vehicles parked along the street. The water may have damaged homes, vehicles, and yards on Goodland Avenue in Studio City.Examination: California’s Water Hogs”It seemed like a torrential rainstorm and we thought it was hail,” said inhabitant Donna Carsten, who went outside at around 2:15 a.m. to research. “Yet it was excessively capable, simply excessively solid, so we went outside.”As water descended upon her roof, Carsten gazed out of her home to see a 40-foot funnel appearing from the road. A portion of the water spilled through the front windows of her home, yet Carsten said a tree in her front lawn helped secured the house from critical water damage.
