WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — A boil water advisory is in effect for some residents in Wilmington after a water main break. SUEZ Water says the break affected water distribution to the communities nearby Bellefonte, Edgemoore, and the Bellevue area of Philadelphia Pike.

Until further notice, customers should boil their water before using it for drinking or cooking purposes even if the water is filtered.

Water does not have to be boiled for showering or washing clothes.
