Josh Einiger has the latest developments.

The streets of New Rochelle and parts of Pelham are flooded with up to a foot of water after a 16-inch water main break.

Cedar Street is shut down after the sidewalk buckled when the water main burst around 7 p.m. Monday evening. Crews are getting ready to tear up the streets to excavate, and figure out what exactly happened.

A 16-inch water main break caused a serious flood, and at some point shut off water service to much of the city and to neighboring Pelham. The issue is really a problem of water pressure more than anything else.

The good news is that the water company, Suez Water has been able to isolate businesses and buildings that are just right near the particular water main. Most of the city has their water back at this point, but they still need to get underground, and there may be further disruptions.

One business that is still affected is the Radisson Hotel
