Ukraine Water Main Explosion Looks Like It Belongs In A Disaster Movie

It might have looked like a Hollywood-style explosion, but this blockbuster was real.

A water main break in Kiev, Ukraine, caused the street to rise and erupt on Monday, unleashing debris and a river of muddy water.

A few cars and windows were damaged, but it appears the impact could easily have taken a more serious toll. No injuries were reported, according to the BBC.

It’s not clear what caused the rupture, the Telegraph reported. However, other reports said the pipe, which had not been in use for decades, exploded around the time officials carried out tests on the water-delivery system.

The blast carved a 64-foot crater in the street.
