A water main break that occurred around 1:45 p.m. Friday at Sand Piper and Tower in southwest Albuquerque has flooded the area.

Parents picking kids up from school had a few issues getting through semi-flooded streets, but there were few traffic issues.

Crews say they are planning to shut of the water to the actual leak, though it's not clear at this point if water service will be cut off to homes.
