Water lines break across Cypress Park and Lincoln Heights

Several water-line breaks in Cypress Park and Lincoln Heights this morning have flooded yards, streets and the basement of USC’s medical school library, according to media reports.  Officials don’t know if the incidents are connected.

In Cypress Park,  a water main break early this morning flooded yards in the 400 block of Isabel Street in Cypress Park, reports NBC4.

Meanwhile, in Lincoln Heights, a ruptured water pipe caused major flooding near Hancock and Altura streets this morning, said CBS2.  In what may be a separate break, water was pouring down Lincoln Park Avenue by Lincoln High on Monday night and this morning, one reader told The Eastsider. Crews were seen jackhammering the pavement on Lincoln Park Avenue this morning, which has been closed off since Tuesday night, the reader said.

About half a mile south at the USC Health Science Campus, another broken water line flooded the basement of the USC Norris Medical Library, said CBS2.  The extent of the damage is not known.
