Crane needed to fix water main break

Weight of tractor trailers break water main

MIAMI - A water main broke in Miami, spilling thousands of gallons of water into the streets.

The water main broke at Northeast 76th Street and 3rd Place on Sunday.

Miami-Dade Water and Sewer said the pipe cracked under the weight of tractor trailers in a storage yard.

On Sunday evening, crews turned off the water and said they expected the flooding to recede.

Monday morning, a crane will come to move the trailers so the main break can be fixed.

The Red Cross is helping more than a dozen families who were evacuated after their homes flooded.
