    Neighbors say when the main broke, they heard at least three loud pops and moments later the streets were flooded.

    The culprit was a broken 12-inch concrete pipe.

    Water damaged some units at a nearby storage center.

    As of 6:40 a.m., water service had been returned to the neighborhood.
