A busted water service pipe flooded a gas main in Newark Thursday afternoon, forcing the city to cut off water service to some South Ward residents.
Electrical power was eventually restored to nearly 2,500 customers, but about 480 were expected to be without gas service for several days.
Friday’s 12-inch water main break continued to cause problems for hundreds of residents in Washington Heights.
The main broke just before noon at West 152 Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue. The water has been shut off, but a gas main break in the area has Con Edison urging residents to contact them if they sense a problem.
