Massive Houston water main break floods roadways; water advisories in effect
Residents in Houston were being asked to conserve water Thursday after a massive water main break in the area of East Loop 610 around noontime flooded roadways and continued releasing water into the evening.
In addition, residents were being asked to boil any water they use prior to drinking, brushing their teeth or washing, Houston’s FOX 26 reported.
"This was a major, a major break," Mayor Sylvester Turner told reporters at a news conference. "As you can see it produced a lot of water and it is still producing a lot of water."
