A huge water main break caused extensive flooding in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore early yesterday. Several residences and businesses lost water service or had low pressure, and a city official said it could be two days before the area returns to normal. The rupture, which occurred about 4 a.m. in the middle of the 100 block of E. Madison St., at Hargrove Alley, turned city streets into fast-rushing streams carrying sand, mud, rocks and chunks of asphalt. The city's Office of Emergency Management set up a command post to coordinate work by the city Department of Public Works, the Fire Department and Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. as city officials expressed concern about the condition of electrical lines, natural gas pipes and a potential collapse of the street, said Kurt Kocher, a public works spokesman.

The problem: "No Stopping" signs restrict parking during morning and evening rush hours for a section of one block of St. Paul Street in Mount Vernon. The back story: This week, Watchdog solves a Mount Vernon mystery, but it turns out the answer was less mysterious than expected. The west side of St. Paul Street used to have "No Stopping" signs that restricted parking during the morning and evening rush. Most of those signs were eventually removed as part of negotiations with the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association about the location of a new homeless shelter on Fallsway.
