How about more sinkholes?
Seattle emergency crews scrambled for hours Wednesday morning to shut down a broken water main that gushed water and mud into Portage Bay and caused a massive sinkhole near the University Bridge that swallowed two cars.
And here’s an email from the UW campus (and hot tipper kt):
This is being sent to all Building Coordinators - Please do not reply to this email.
Be aware that there has been a water main break on the south side of the University Bridge, affecting our SW campus buildings. Water pressure is currently being restored by the City of Seattle. Campus buildings will experience some episodes of brown water, and water pressure surging, as city water is restored.
The surging of water pressure may set off fire alarms in your building. Should this occur, follow normal evacuation procedures. UPD and fire alarm technicians are standing by and are prepared for this occurrence.
Vote sinkhole in ‘08!
