An unknown water main break has left thousands of people without water at this hour.
Officials from Erie Water Works tell us they are still working to pinpoint exactly where this water main break happened.
They've been out all morning trying to find its exact location.
At this hour thousands of people have been affected.
Erie Water Works executive Paul Vojtek tells us the leak happened early this morning in an extremely large area.
He showed us that it could be anywhere within the East Booster Area, from Hannon Road on the east to Cherry Street on the west side to East 38th Street and Grandview.
Vojtek explains a lot of the times with ice and snow the break won't show itself. So what they've done is turn on their pumps.
Erie Water Works is adding more water into the affected territory in hopes that the break will eventually show itself.
Vojtek says based on the calls they've received so far, they're still trying to draw conclusions and narrow down the area so they can get this break under control.
What crews are doing now is checking stream crossings to see if anything is there. This break could also be underneath plowed snow, preventing anyone from seeing it.
At this point, officials say quick changes in weather could be to blame. They always see an increase in water main breaks in the winter.
