WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

A water main break is causing problems in Westwood Tuesday morning.

McHenry Avenue is down to one lane until further notice between Fyffe Avenue and Westwood Northern Boulevard.

Access onto McHenry Avenue also is blocked at Saffer Street.

At least one basement flooded in the 3300 block of McHenry, Cincinnati dispatchers confirm.

A passerby reported the water main break several hours ago, they said.

McHenry Avenue remained open overnight.

Then, crews were called to the area again about 6 a.m.

Once first responders arrived, they realized thousands of gallons of water was gushing on the road, the dispatcher said.

They said the road was collapsing.

A Greater Cincinnati Water Works supervisor was alerted and immediately sent workers scrambling to the scene, dispatchers confirm.

FOX19 NOW is at the scene and will continue to update this breaking story.
