MINNEAPOLIS -- A water main break in downtown Minneapolis flooded streets and an apartment early Sunday morning.
The incident happened at 7th Street S. and Portland Ave. around 4:00 a.m.
Water flooded the basement and lower floor of the Sexton Condos, forcing some residents to evacuate.
L.A. Nik, who lives in a three story unit, says everything in his basement was ruined.
Crews turned off the water after they found the break in a 12-inch water main under Portland Ave.
City officials don't yet know the cause of the break, and say their focus is on repairing the water main and restoring water service to the Sexton Condos and three nearby buildings.
