DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) -- Work crews were cleaning up into the night in a Daly City neighborhood after a water main broke and spewed about 45,000 gallons of water into the neighborhood.
A torrent of mud created from the rushing water left vehicles in the neighborhood stuck in mud up to their wheel wells.
A North County Fire Department official says the flood began around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday when an 8-inch cast iron pipe broke on a Daly City-owned reservoir on top of hill above the neighborhood.
Officials say no homes were damaged, though about 12 homes were evacuated for several hours.
