VIDEO: Major water main break in Belmont forces evacuations

SAN MATEO COUNTY (KRON) — Several Belmont homes are in danger of flooding after a major water main break Friday morning.

Around 3:30 a.m. emergency crews responded to the 2800 block of San Juan Blvd.

KRON4’s Lydia Pantazes is reporting live from this location.

She says three homes have been evacuated in the area.

One resident was told to leave his home because a retaining wall behind his house is at risk of falling due to the excessive flooding.

Around 6:30 a.m., the water was shut off.

However, residents were only allowed back into their homes momentarily to grab important belongings.

This is because the hillside is unstable.

Crews are still trying to figure out what caused the water main to break.
