Wednesday was a wet night for some residents in the Wicks Lake neighborhood, but it can't be blamed on any rain.
Between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., a car knocked over a fire hydrant at the intersection of Wicks Lake Drive and Angelisa Trail, sending water down two hilly residential streets.
A resident told East Cobb Patch that as water maintenance workers were repairing the hydrant, gas lines were accidentally cut, and that residents could hear "super loud hissing" until gas crews arrived.
Full water service was restored to the affected homes by around noon Thursday.
Getting out of the East Cobb subdivision for the Thursday morning commute also required patience and an alternate route due to maintenance equipment still located in the area.
Wicks Lake, located off Murdock Road, opened in 1974 and has 82 homes.
