A SOGGY BIT OF IRONY

A Tampa water department truck fell into a hole that opened up when the water main under S Himes Avenue broke, flooding the street and several homes Thursday. Water department employee Shawn Williams was responding to a call in the area about water bubbling up from the street. "All of a sudden the road up and swallows his truck," said Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy. City workers capped the line and turned off water to the street. McElroy said the city would provide temporary housing for people whose homes were damaged and would pay for repairs.
