Crews repair water main break on Panthersville Road

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, Ga. -

Crews worked until Monday morning on a portion of Panthersville Road to restore water service to nearby residents after a water main failed.

The water main break happened on Panthersville Road near River Road on Sunday afternoon. A portion of the road was closed down while crews worked to make the necessary repairs.

Up to 400 people were without water on Sunday. Residents without water say this is actually the second time the area has been hit with a water main break this weekend. A different portion of the same line broke on Friday night.

At least one home was directly affected by the break with water creeping into their garage and crawl space.

County officials say the pipes in the area are about 50 years old, and this is the likely cause of the breaks. Crews repaired the water main break early Monday morning.

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.
