Seriously? (Completely unsubstantiated rumor via G-LOOP as of 12:56 pm - UPDATE: verified by DWP as of 2:36pm)

2nd UPDATE: hundreds of photos here:

Hi neighbors. I was just down checking on the set-up for the festival this weekend. It appears that a water main burst through the street at Sunset and Edgecliff. The people in about the last affordable family housing unit in the neighborhood on that corner were being evacuated by LAFD. LADWP is en route to turn off the main, but the only thing holding up
the street at this point is the force of the water.

There is a HUGE geyser (about two or so stories high) that is flooding
down Sunset (west) and is creating its own wind system.

I have pics and video that I can e-mail and will try and upload as soon
as I can.

See what happens when you don't bring the Zipper to the fair?
