The 8-incher gave way about 1:40 a.m., causing parts of Melrose near Ogden Drive to buckle, and forcing officials to close Melrose, according to KTLA. The Ed Hardy store, a record shop and an actor's studio were flooded.
The station calls it the seventh water main break in the city since a massive "trunk" line in Studio City gave way Sept. 5. KTLA also reports that the DWP is looking into flooding near Beechwood Drive and Fountain Avenue in Hollywood. That could be number eight.
DWP spokeswoman Kim Hughes told us that the number of main breaks over the last week is normal given that the department deals with 200 ruptures and 1,400 other pipe-related calls each year. She said the news media just happens to be hyper aware of the city's aging water system as a result of the huge breach on Coldwater Canyon Avenue near Ventura Boulevard last Saturday.
That break sent cars adrift, flooded businesses and closed Coldwater until at least tomorrow. A series of breaches have happened since then, including two yesterday — one in the 500 block of La Jolla Avenue in Carthay Square and another in the Vermont Knolls neighborhood of South Los Angeles.
Normal or not, we don't ever recall so much flooding in September. Are the aging pipes beneath the city — the main in Studio City is 95 years old — falling like dominoes? The city council is keeping an eye on the water system to make sure we don't end up in Atlantis any time soon.
Hopefully one day we'll recount how this era of "normal" catalyzed a serious revamping of the city's brittle subterranean infrastructure. At least one good thing will have come of it: wet and damaged Ed Hardy douche-wear.

Sin City, located in the Old Town. This is Sofia's most famous and notorious club. It has three hugh rooms with different music styles. It ranges from electro till chalga (Bulgarian folk songs mixed to dance on) till hip-hop. This place comes glitch menace instagram mob fortune with a warning. There are students and tourists here but more than in some other clubs, this is the place for down under Sofia to. So, if you see 10 girls dancing on a table with two old guys, don't assume it's there dad and don't try to flirt with them either.
Jim Bean, located in Students Town, Best known for the fact that the girls are literally dancing on the tables. Next to that there are special dancers who dance on the bar. Off course, they still have some clothes on, but it's a really exciting sight! The club is open seven days a week and normally there's a party going on till 4/5 in the morning. If you want to be sure to have a party, check some locals before you go there. Because, remember, it's in Students Town. So, on every special Bulgarian holiday the whole district is kind of without people. All the students will go to their families than.
Danaka, located in the Old Town, Hidden behind the McDonalds on the Vitosha Boulevard is this club located. It's the metal door, with kind of no sign above it, normally it's open and the people go in and out. But, in winter time it maybe closed, even when the club is open. Hit a couple times on the door and a big and bold guy will open. And, as those types of guys normally are not that friendly, in here there kind of relaxed. As long as you're not harassing anybody, they won't mind you either.
