Water Main Break Floods Intersection In Wynnefield

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – CBS 3 at the scene as a water main break floods the streets in Wynnefield.

A 20-inch main ruptured shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday at 57th Street and Wynnefield Avenue.

They are using salt to break up ice on the road.

It’s unclear if cold weather played a role in the break.
