Utility crews continued working on a broken water main Thursday morning after it created a large hole and sent a river of water down an Anaheim street the day before.

Police and firefighters arrived Wednesday afternoon to find major flooding in the 800 block of Sabina Street.

Pressure from a water main break below ground caused a hole to open up and sent water rushing down the street, a spokesperson for the city of Anaheim said.

About six customers were impacted by the break, the spokesperson said.

One resident said he had no idea what happened when he arrived at his home.

“As soon as I got here, I just see a river in our street,” resident Joshua Valadez said.

Video showed Anaheim Public Utilities crews still working on the pipe as of 5 a.m. Thursday.

Crews finished repairing the water main and had refilled the hole by 7 a.m.
