–Construction workers improving the roadway on the north end of Vine Street ruptured a water main around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. Tens of thousands of gallons of water gushed into the road and ran down 32nd and 34th Streets to Spring Street. The runoff created large pools of standing water on Spring and Oak Streets.

It took city public works nearly an hour to shut-off the water.
