    It took water crews two hours to find the source and shut off the water.

    During that time, a huge geyser shot into the night sky and blocked traffic.

    Two lines in the area were down as of 6 a.m. Tuesday.

    The Rainbow Municipal Water District was not sure when water service to the area will be restored.
