    Water was flowing south toward the Balboa Park.

    Water service has been restored to people affected when a water pipe broke and flooding streets in North Park Monday. 

    The break happened around 5 p.m. Water poured down Georgia Street and Florida Court near Balboa Park.

    North Park resident TJ Linnard described it as a geyser shooting 20 feet in the air.

    “We just didn’t believe it was happening,” Linnard said. “Walked over here and saw the ground crack.”
