View Larger Map

ECHO PARK — The early morning rupture of an 8-inch water main near Alvarado Street and Sunset Boulevard flooded a handful of shops and will leave some businesses and residences without water until this afternoon, reports KTLA. Nearby streets had also been closed as crews repaired the break.

Some of the same buildings were flooded during a water main break two years ago.

  1. So bummed to see Rewind flooded on the news this morning, I hope Pizza Buona didn’t get hit too hard…. I mean I wish the best for all local businesses but they just got all those nice renovations after the car plowed in over a year ago…. so sad.
