Wow. Just over 12 hours and already it's on CNN. Here's their story.
here's the linkA 3-foot-diameter water main burst on Chicago's North Side early Tuesday, gushing out thousands of gallons of water that crumbled pavement and turned a major street into a small lake.
Police closed several blocks around Montrose Avenue and Wolcott Street and the Chicago Transit Authority briefly shut down a nearby train station and rerouted buses.
A hole in the street quickly grew to 25 feet long and the torrent ripped a light pole and several parking meters from the sidewalk.
"It was a dramatic scene," said Tom LaPorte, spokesman for the city's Department of Water Management. "That's lot of water to come out of the pipe all at once. The deepest was about 4 feet of water."
