SCRANTON, LACKWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) – Crews were on the scene of a water main break in Scranton on Monday morning.
It happened on Green Ridge Street, just before 4:00. Green Ridge Street was shut down for more than three hours, but has since re-opened.
A nearby resident called 911 after seeing all of the water.
“My back door, I can look right up the street, and I saw it and I go holy cow and called 911. They blocked off the street, cars were driving through it, so it was amazing,” said Mike Ballard of Scranton.
A contractor has been brought in to make repairs.
