A 12-inch water main burst in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday morning, sending water flooding down streets and affecting service to at least five buildings in the area.
The break was reported at 5:40 a.m. near the intersection of Main Street and Olympic Boulevard, according to Michael Ventre of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Repair crews were on scene and working to restore service, an effort that could take several hours, Ventre said.
