If you’re driving on Sunset Blvd. through Silverlake this evening, you might notice a bit more water.
As I was driving home the fire department dispatched two ladder trucks to Sunset & Golden Gate because of a displaced hydrant.

UPDATE: As usual, Brian Humphrey gives us the particulars … no one was injured but a few firefighters got wet.
For those who don’t follow along at the LAPD blog, there have been several incidents lately where the LAFD has gone above and beyond, including the rescue of a foal stuck in an empty swimming pool and helped move prescriptions at a RiteAid damaged by too much rain on the roof to make sure that folks got their drugs.
I have no idea if it was an auto accident that caused it, I wasn’t able to see anything past the large plume of water as we drove past.
