Water Gushes after Main Break in Scranton

SCRANTON -- Crews work to patch up a water main break in Scranton.

Officials said the break happened on the 1400 block of Division Street.

Newswatch 16 found water gushing into people's yards and one neighbor said it was flowing into his basement.

Crews believe the 10-inch line break is affecting the surrounding four blocks in Lackawanna County.

Pennsylvania American Water said 75 customers are affected by the water main break.

Crews were able to finish repairs by 4:30 p.m. Monday.

A tanker is located at the intersection of Division and 14th Streets.
