• Crews worked into night to fix broken water main that left dozens without water

    ATLANTA - Water came back on for dozens of families after crews worked into the night to fix a 6-inch water main break.

    Crews shut off the broken water main Sunday afternoon, but they still had to fix the pipe on Loring Drive in northwest Atlanta that burst.

    "My house is the one that's lost access, so I can't get back to the house at all," said Hasani McHoney. "All the water upstairs is off because the pressure is not good enough to make it upstairs, you know."

    A spokersperson with the Department of Watershed Management told Channel 2's Christian Jennings 40 homes had no water at one point on Sunday.

    John Olsen has lived in the area for 14 years and said the neighborhood has never had this issue before. 

    "My wife drove by here earlier, and she said water crews were walking on the street and you could see the asphalt moving beneath their feet, so I suspected it was bad, and it looks pretty bad," he said.

    McHoney still has concerns as he looks to Monday morning.

    "I'm worried about potential sinkholes and things that may happen later on. It is a little nerve-wracking," he said.
