Eddie Van Halen’s LA home gets washed out

A broken water main floods the rocker's yard

Eddie Van Halen‘s Los Angeles property got flooded when a broken water main in nearby Studio City sent thousands of gallons of water flowing down Coldwater Canyon and into his yard.

The guitarist was on tour in Canada earlier this week with his recently reunited band Van Halen when he received a phone call from Los Angeles fire officials notifying him about the damage. He then flew back home to assess the damage.

“The pool is buried in mud, the driveway gate is down and some major landscaping is going to be needed to restore the yard to its former self,” Janie Liszewski, Van Halen‘s publicist and live-in girlfriend, told the Associated Press.

Van Halen‘s home was reportedly the only one to be damaged by the water.
