A flash storm dropped nearly a foot of rain in less than an hour in some parts of the city. The rain was too much for this manhole, which exploded under the pressure.

Unfortunately, the rear part of a car was parked under the sewer cover, the geyser of water was so strong it lifted the back half of the car into the air, not once but several times.

The car was badly damaged when it came crashing down.
