Cold Temperatures Cause Water Main Break in Panama City

By  | 

Frigid temperatures caused a water main break in Saint Andrews Tuesday morning creating detours.

Officials say the 10 inch pipe burst around 7:00 Tuesday morning on Beck Avenue.

The two way road between 13th and 14th is still shut down as crews work to repair the water main.

Several stores owners on Beck Avenue say business is unusually slow.

"We've only had two customers all day. Normally we are super busy this time of the year. We've not been able to get any customers in. we'll just be doing a lot of training today and keep the employees inside; keep them warm." say Avery Adcock, Dan's Pawn Owner.

Detours have been set up for anyone driving in the area.

Still no word yet on when the street will re-open or when the water will be shut off.
