Muddy water was gushing through Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, flooding the area and nearby streets this afternoon due to a water main break.

Sunset Boulevard was shut down around La Cienega Boulevard and Sweetzer Avenue after the L.A. Dept. of Water and Power (LADWP) crews responded to reports of the water main break around 2:30 p.m., according to KTLA. Also closed is North La Cienega Boulevard between Sunset Boulevard and Fountain Avenue, and there are more closures expected on Fountain Avenue.

Here are some photos of the flooding:
