A watermain break outside of the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board plant has shut down South Claiborne Avenue.

Water could be seen swiftly flowing out from the facility and the road looked to be badly bucked, causing concern for a potential collapse of the roadway.

A spokeswoman for the Sewerage and Water Board said a six-inch pipe had broke.
