Water Floods Streets, then Freezes Along Central El Paso
EL PASO - Water flooded streets in central El Paso overnight, and that water then froze on the pavement.
We're told a water meter blew a gasket, and that caused water to shoot out. Witnesses said the water shot so high into the air that it reached the balconies of nearby apartments before coming down on the road.
El Paso Water Utilities sent crews out to fix the leak and cover the ice with sand.
