Since 2 a.m. this morning, thee more pipes have burst, prompting more road closures, reports the LA Times. One burst on Mulholland Drive between Coldwater and Beverly Glen--another two broke in South LA at 83rd and Wall streets and Florence and Van Ness avenues. Yesterday afternoon, an LADWP water leak closed a portion of Rinaldi Street in Porter Ranch. So far, no conclusive word on why these are happening at such a destructive rate.
