Air pressure causes manhole cover to ‘float’ in Phoenix road

A Phoenix resident captured video of a 15-pound manhole cover “floating” in a dance-like rhythm due to underground air pressure from a storm.

Jessie Pena posted a video to Facebook showing the manhole cover in the Coronado Historic District “floating” on the air pressure from a Tuesday evening storm.

Commenters compared the manhole cover’s movements to a dance.

Pena said the manhole cover weighs about 150 pounds.
