Water-main break snarls traffic in Manayunk
A water-main break Wednesday afternoon caused basement flooding in nine businesses and snarled traffic in Manayunk.
An eight-inch water main ruptured about 3:30 p.m. in the 4400 block of Main Street, said Philadelphia Water Department spokeswoman Laura Copeland. Crews eventually shut off the water, leading to a halt of water service for more than 20 businesses. The 4400 block of Main also was closed to traffic.
