Water main break shoots water 50-feet high

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A water main break caused water to shoot up into the area at least 50-feet high on Friday.

It happened near 127th and Wornall, in south Kansas City, Mo.

The break sprayed water on a nearby home. That homeowner, Ross Worley, says the water did not damage his home. “It was terrible. It was running around the back side of the house, and running through it, and down the drain,” said Worley. “It was running some volume.”

No word what may have caused the line to break. Authorities say crews should finish repairs by Saturday morning.
