LOYALSOCK TOWNSHIP -- The water is back on after a pipe burst Saturday in part of Lycoming County.

Water gushed from the water main in video courtesy of the Williamsport Sun Gazette.

The break happened Saturday afternoon just outside the city on Four Mile Drive in Loyalsock Township.

Crews fixed the break by evening and folks in that area are being asked to boil their water until Tuesday.

Newswatch 16 spoke to one woman who described what she saw when the main spewed all that water near her home.

"It was a very very loud noise, sounded like a train was coming through actually and the water was shooting way above the trees. It's kind of a pain to have to boil your water but we'll deal with it," said Valerie Gardner, Loyalsock Township.

There is no word what caused the main break. Water officials could not say how many home and businesses were affected in Lycoming County.

A water boil in effect after the break was lifted Tuesday.
