Water main break creates downtown LA mess

December 10, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A water main break created a big mess in downtown Los Angeles Saturday morning.

It happened at around 3 a.m. at Central Avenue and east 8th Street.

A 24-inch pipe broke under the intersection; a river of water ran down the street. Two blocks had to be shut down as the water flooded the area up to 2-feet deep in some spots.

Crews turned off the water and worked on repairs.
