UPDATE: The main has been fixed and water has been restored to all customers according to a Pennsylvania American Water representative.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- A water main break could cause problems for drivers Thursday morning in Wilkes-Barre.

Water could be seen pouring into the street at the intersection of River and Market Streets after a 12-inch water main broke.

A part of River Street is closed because of that break.

Drivers are being detoured because part of  Market Street is closed as well.

Officials haven't said how many homes and businesses are affected by the break just that customers between River and Franklin Streets will be impacted.

There's no estimate of when it could be fixed here in Wilkes-Barre.
