A water main break sent a geyser of water into the air on a quiet New Jersey street overnight Wednesday.

The main broke under Whittaker Court in Wayne just before 2 a.m.

Water sprayed about 30 feet in the air until workers arrived and closed the main.

It is not clear why the water broke through the street.

The break damaged Whittaker Court, a dead-end street, which will have to be repaired.

Local water service disruptions were reported.
