Farmington Flood Footage

From the Courant:

A water main break could keep Farmington Avenue closed between Sigourney Street and Sisson Avenue through the evening, a Metropolitan District spokesman said this afternoon.

Crews on the scene are working to temporarily shut down water service to fix a 20-inch water main reported broken about 2 p.m. today at the intersection of Farmington Avenue and Gillett Street.

Matt Nozzolio, an MDC spokesman, said crews are prepared to work through the night to repair the break, snarling traffic on the busy street during the evening rush hour. An undetermined number of residents may see some water service interruptions due to the main break, Nozzolio said.


we're one and two of that undetermined number, unfortunately. I hate not having water, especially that flushing thing.

On the upside, I got some footage (sorry if the video is a little spotty):

Oh, Kim, I'm so sorry! Electricity going out occasionally I can live with - I mean, candles and blankets and dawn solve a lot of issues - but having the water out is always a major pain.

Hope they get it fixed soon!

Kim,

That is just awesome footage! Great video. Being without water totally sucks, though. I hope that all is back to normal, by now.

What the hell is it about our respective neighborhoods and minor disasters, anyway? If it isn't gas lines blowing up and torching trees in Northfield, it is water mains breaking and flooding streets in Hartford.

You don't suppose someone is trying to tell us something, do you?

Torched trees in Northfield, flooded streets in Hartford...hmm, that P _ _ _ S sure gets around, doesn't she?
