Geyser in South Temecula caused by clipped Fire Hydrant

Temecula, CA — Early Sunday morning a fire hydrant in the Kohl’s department store parking lot on Temecula Parkway was knocked over sending tens of thousands of gallons into the air in a spectacular geyser.

The geyser reached heights of forty feet flooding the Kohl’s parking lot and the intersection onto Margarita Road and continued for over an hour. Authorities were notified, the water was turned off and the parking lot was drained by 10:45 am.

Citizens traveling in that vicinity are advised of possible detours into the Kohl’s/Walmart shopping center.
