    Southwest Philadelphia water main break shuts down area streets

    A broken water main is causing a geyser of water to spew into the sky in Southwest Philly. 

    The break, at 54th and Whitby Streets, was reported at around 5:30 a.m.

     

    Icing is a concern due to the low temperatures this morning — according to philly.com, officials have closed streets in the area and have requested salt trucks to deal with icy conditions on roadways.
