NEW ORLEANS -- A massive water main break in Lakeview flooded streets on Memphis Street between Filmore Avenue and Porteous Street.

The flow of water or sewerage was stopped around 9:30 a.m. as Sewerage & Water Board crews fix the massive leak.

Around 8:30 a.m., water could be seen cascading into the 6500 block of Memphis Street with the intensity to break the sidewalk.

The water crept into residents’ yards and covered the sidewalks on the street.
