Fire Hydrant Blown on PCH & Hoag Drive

If you are planning on driving to, from, or near the peninsula today, be aware of what appears to be a fire hydrant which was hit on PCH by Hoag Drive, near the Royal Thai Cuisine.  A massive, high-pressure water main (likely 8 inch pipe) is shooting into the air for several stories.
