2 Pipes Burst, Flood Neighborhood Streets

Dozens of residents were without water service Friday after two water main breaks occurred within hours of each other.

Flooding was first reported on Federal Boulevard, between 49th and 50th Streets.

Then, around 3 a.m., water crews were called to an area about two miles away when a pipe broke near Gibson Street and Plover Street.

Crews had to close Federal Boulevard to traffic because of the amount of water flooding the road.

Water service to dozens of customers was shut off around 8 a.m. and was not expected to be restored until 8 p.m.
