JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- Repairs have been completed on a water main break that left a neighborhood in Jersey City without service on Christmas Day.

A water main broke at 2nd Street and Manila Avenue Sunday afternoon.

The six-inch main was shut down for repairs, affecting nearly 150 people.

The Suez Water Company said repairs were completed at about 9:15 Monday morning and full service was restored.

One resident had a flooded basement and no service.

"There's thousands of dollars in damage down there," said one homeowner. "It's not on my Christmas list."
