[UPDATE 9:37 p.m. Road Closed Most of Night] Water Main Break Flooding Myrtle
“We are going to have to shut down eastbound Myrtle at Hall Avenue,” reports traffic control via the scanner. Later, the report comes that the “break is affecting most of Myrtletown.” Many of Lost Coast Outpost readers are reporting no water in their homes.
Scanner traffic indicates that crews are attempting to shut down the water.
Our reporter on site, Oliver Cory, says it looks like more water is pouring onto the road.
UPDATE 9 p.m.: Both north and southbound traffic is now stopped. More photos from the scene.
