BOULDER, Colo. -- Cleanup crews will be back in a Boulder neighborhood on Tuesday morning after several homes were damaged when a water main break turned the roads in front of their properties into a river.

The 8-inch cast iron water main broke just after 4:40 p.m. near the corner of Norwood Avenue and Cress Court in north Boulder.

Officials said 13 homes were damaged, with several having flooded basements and damage to landscaping.

Water was cut off to homes on Norwood Avenue, Cress Court and Wilson Court as crews worked to fix the main.

No residents were displaced. The cause of the break has not been determined.
