Not so much. Water main breaks are pretty infrequent here compared to similar older cities.

They were probably referring to the condition of the roads.

And this, my friends, is why you may have woken up to helicopters over the city around 7am.

Reminds me how ridiculous local TV news can be.

An aerial view can give some indication of how widespread the flood is. Though a drone flight would serve the same purpose without the noise of helicopters.

By 7am, it was just a hole in the ground, a bunch of BWSC trucks, news vans, and police cars. The flood waters were long gone.

There were also 4 or 5 news vans, each one with a reporter applying make-up in the front seat. There was certainly no news breaking.

Prayers up for the denizens of downtown Boston who must be inconvenienced by noise. Don't people know this is a quiet part of town?
