There’s a geyser shooting probably 50 feet in the air alongside the freeway in the Milpas area. I am seeing it from miles away in the Montecito foothills.

KEYT has it:
Santa Barbara police closed some roads due to a sheared hydrant caused a water flood on Wednesday afternoon in Santa Barbara.

On Wednesday afternoon, Santa Barbara City police and Santa Barbara City Fire responded to a sheared hydrant spewing water in the area of Milpas and Indio Muerto in Santa Babrara.

According to officers on scene, a white pickup truck was trying to turn and cut too close and the side hit a fire hydrant.

Oh boy, if you have brown water, this hydrant explosion pressure changes probably caused water main breaks. And we all know what happens when one main breaks, a nearby one will break next, rinse and repeat.

I heard there was an earlier break in Montecito that was before this.

So whoever hit it does their insurance have to pay the city for the water and fixing the hydrant. I mean that is really bad driving.
