An operative just filed this report about an still-unfolding, watery disaster over at Hollywood Center Studios:
A sewer pipe busted here at Hollywood Center Studios, and there are thousands of gallons of brown water torrenting down the streets and into studios and offices. Not sure yet if it's poowater or not.
We welcome updates from any souls brave enough to wade back through the potentially tainted floodwaters to their computers or offer their cameraphone photography of the scene. But should the raging waters not recede, we recommend that you seek higher ground until rescue parties and relief supplies arrive from nearby the nearby Paramount and Raleigh Studios lots.
UPDATE: An update from the lot momentarily puts our mind at ease: "A water main broke at HCS, and my staffers and I just went to investigate - it's mud and not feces folks! All is clear. Chill out and go get yourself a latte a the HCS cafe."
There you have it: Mudwater, not poowater. An environmental cataclysm may have been avoided.
