Water Main Break, 42nd & S. Harrison

A water-main break in central Amarillo gave residents a spectacular site, but left some without water.

The break happened around three this afternoon at the intersection of 42nd and South Harrison.

Water shot as high as 30-feet in the air before city workers could shut down the main water valve.

Homes in the area are expected to have their water service restored this evening, while the street repair could take several days.
