ATLANTA - A major water main break in northwest Atlanta sent a river of water gushing down a street into driveways and the basement of a homeowner.
Morton and her husband said the
"I tried to block the water in the basement, and I pulled out one of the vehicles, but the other one I couldn't get," said homeowner Harold Morton.
The water main break collapsed one section of Chalmers Drive and buckled pavement. The broken main was fixed by late Monday afternoon and the street was reopened.
Crews will return Tuesday to finish street repairs and to clear mud from the area.
