Water and mud spout from Avalon Street water main break

Posted: Updated:

It was a sight to behold for people in the Roberts and Alameda area this afternoon.  Water spouting 20 to 40 feet in the air actually reaching the telephone lines.

A water main break on Avalon Street, near Alameda, sent water, mud and debris shooting into the air earlier today.  

Witnesses say they saw the water spewing , and notified Corpus Christi Police.  City utility crews were able to get the water shut off and stop the geyser, but not before nearby vehicles and businesses were covered in mud and debris.

There’s no word yet on what caused the break.

This is a phone camera video.
