Mar Vista water main break floods streets, prompts evacuation


Water began spewing out around 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Charnock and Stoner avenues. The water rushed onto the streets and eventually flooded homes.

Two homes were directly impacted, and one family evacuated. One of the homes had several feet of water in the garage area.

"We've always wanted a pool, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind," said one young girl.

Water was seen over the curb as far as three blocks away from where the water main broke.

Fortunately, crews were able to fix the water main.
