A broken water main sent gallons of water rushing into the roadway on Airdrome Street and Stanley Avenue in Mid-City.

Crews got the call at about 3:30 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found the broken 8-inch main and a street that looked more like a river.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power shut off water service to 10 customers in an effort to get the break under control.

Crews worked to repair the main. There was no word on what caused the water main break.
