While drivers in Acadiana might complain about the number and size of the potholes we have to traverse on our roadways, the City of New Orleans has just pulled a municipal version of "Hold My Beer".

That video from the WDSU Facebook page shows what looks to be a geyser erupting from beneath an Irish Channel street.

Residents of the neighborhood said the trouble began last night about 7 PM when a pipe burst beneath Aline Street. The force of the water quickly ripped a hole in the ground and roadway above it creating the scene you see in the video.

New Orleans Water and Sewer crews were able to shut the water off to the spewing mess about 9 PM last night.
