DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Rosalyn Stokes thought she would be celebrating Fourth of July fireworks Thursday. Instead, she had to deal with water works after a 30-foot-high geyser erupted in her front yard.
Another neighbor, Velma Jacobs, grabbed a camcorder and recorded video of the geyser, too. She said it shot up so high, it soaked a series of power lines over their street. She was worried the water and electricity wouldn't mix.
"It scared me. It really did," said Jacobs. "I didn't know what was going to happen. I said, if those lines fall, it's going to be some severe damage out there."
The lines did not fall, and Stokes
Stokes was more happy to learn she would not have to pay for the repairs since the break happened on
"It's on the county line, so they'll pay for it, thank God," said Stokes.
