    Water Main Break in Van Nuys Floods Streets

    A broken water main leads to street closures in Van Nuys. Toni Guinyard reports for the NBC4 News at Noon on Monday, Nov. 9, 2015. (Published Monday, Nov. 9, 2015)

    A water main break flooded a San Fernando Valley intersection Monday morning, leaving about 30 customers without water and forcing street closures.

    The 6-inch pipe break was reported at about 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Haskell Avenue and Leadwell Street in Van Nuys. Water was shut off about 40 minutes later, allowing crews to begin repairs on a section of street that buckled.

    Service was restored at about 9 a.m.

    The break involved a pipe installed in 1929, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
