BALTIMORE (AP) Baltimore public works officials say a break in a 42-inch water main is flooding a street in a residential neighborhood.

Public Works spokesman Kurt Kocher says the broken main in the 1600 block of Argonne Drive has caused severe roadway flooding and damage. Crews are also checking houses in the area to see if the break has any gas leaks.

Kocher urged residents not to try to return to their homes, or to stay in their homes if they are at home. Kocher says the cafeteria at Morgan State University is being made available to those who are unable to return home. The spokesman said he did not know how long it would take to stop the leak, or how many homes are without water.
