[Updated] Water main break on East 13th Street

Apparently the water is coming from the Mystery Lot construction site!

The NYPD is on the scene!

Report from the scene: The bubbling water has subsided. An inch or so at its deepest on East 13th Street...

Con Ed is at the scene... and gave the all clear on electric and gas... However, an unknown number of residents will be without water for several days, according to what officials told Katja.

Workers are digging into the guilty party...

I live on the block. I just checked and our water's still out. "Without water for several days" sounds... unfun.
