CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A water main break causes quite a mess for one Corpus Christi neighborhood on Tuesday. It happened just before 9 a.m. at Fort Worth Street and Hopper Drive.

A large amount of water created a temporary pond in the area. According to officials, it was a six-inch, cast iron water main that broke.

The City's Water Department said they suspect the ground shifting led to the break. It affected 15-20 homes in the area.
