“Wow, that’s something strange, we’ve never had that around this area,” said neighbor Willie Suarez. “That’s something irregular, we’ve never seen around here that’s for sure.”

The water was shooting up in the air in a narrow stream for a while, but luckily most of the water was flowing into a large ditch near the break.

No homes have seen any water get onto their property.
