Video: Huge Geyser Gushing In Hollywood

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

There's a huge geyser gushing in Hollywood this afternoon, spraying high up above the buildings there, hitting a palm tree and flooding the street.

Steve Smith tweeted to LADWP a photo of the scene at 6300 W. Willoughby Avenue. He tells LAist that he got to the scene around 2:25 p.m. and firetrucks arrived about five minutes later.

LADWP tweeted back to Smith, "Yikes! Thanks for the report. Will get into the right hands."

Justin Benjamin posted this Vine around 3 p.m. of the gnarly situation:

We hope we don't have another UCLA water main break type of situation on our hands.
