SCRANTON- A late night water main break in Scranton buckled a road and flowed water into businesses.

The ten inch water main at North Main Street and West Lackawanna Avenue broke around 2 a.m. Saturday.

A spokesperson for Pennsylvania American Water says about a dozen businesses were affected, but many of them were closed today. The block was shut down during the repairs, but is now open because the main is fixed.
