A water main break sent a geyser of water shooting in the air in Hoboken this morning. Eyewitness News is told the 12 inch main broke on Clinton Street, near Fifth Street, at around 1:30 a.m.

A geyser of water could be seen shooting into the air, pouring down on a car parked feet from the break. However, officials say a man was able to start the car and move it out of the way.

The break flooded streets near the Church Towers apartment complex.

It was the second water main break in the area in as many days.
