A water main break at East 80th and Superior Avenue has caused extensive damage to the road. According the Cleveland Water Department, the road between East 79th and East 82nd will be closed, at least for a couple of days.  

Street Department crews in Cleveland are warning residents of a water main break that occurred early Wednesday morning at East 80th and Superior. The break caused major damage to the road.

It happened just before 6 a.m.

According to crews, this is a 48-inch water main break. An abandoned building near the break has been flooded and will be inspected for structural damage.  

Cleveland Water is on the scene. 

So far, no boil alert has been issued. Some customers have complained about a yellowish tint. The water department advises customers to water the run for a couple of minutes and the yellowish color will go away.
