BETTENDORF, Iowa - UPDATE 4:30 p.m.: The water main break has been repaired and water has been restored to all 75 customers affected.

The customers affected are being told to boil water until 7:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon.

The early morning storms delayed crews from repairing the break.

Crews are still on site back-filling the hole but repairs are now complete.

ORIGINAL: Hillside Drive near Magnolia was flooded at 3 a.m. Tuesday. Water was gushing and bubbling-up from the ground due to what appears to be a large water main break.

The area is about a half mile from Grant Wood Elementary School. School doesn't start until the end of the week but teachers are back at work today.
