Underground Explosion Obliterates South LA Street

SOUTH LOS ANGELES ( — The LADWP is still trying to figure out the cause of an underground explosion Wednesday on a busy street in South L.A. Several streets remained blocked off through Wednesday night at Brynhurst Avenue and 63rd street in the Hyde Park neighborhood. The blast happened around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, sending asphalt and two 250-pound manhole covers flying. Brian Jefferson and his brother Adrian live right next to where it happened. “I just heard a real loud sound, kind of like a boom, like there was truck accident,” Brian Jefferson said. Incredibly, no one was hurt in the blast, but several parked cars were damaged and windshields were shattered. Source
