A ruptured water main caused flooding and street damage in Lake View Terrace early Thursday morning.

The break occurred shortly before 4 a.m. at Paxton Street and Foothill Boulevard near the intersection of the 210 and 118 freeways.

The broken 36-inch water main sent a river of water onto the roadways. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power reported street damage, but it was not known if it resulted in a sinkhole.

The water was shut off around 6:45 a.m. The number of affected customer was not immediately known, but officials said water is expected to be restored by 5 p.m.

This is just one of multiple ruptured water mains that caused flooding across the city of Los Angeles Thursday morning.
