At least one home flooded following East Vancouver water main break
An East Vancouver neighbourhood was closed for a number of hours after a water main broke early Friday morning.
City crews were called to Adanac Street and Lakewood Drive after fast-running water sent debris flowing through the neighbourhood.

At least one home experienced some flooding.
Nearby Templeton Secondary, meanwhile, didn’t sustain any damage as crews managed to prevent flooding from reaching the school.
A Pro-D Day meant students were not in class Friday.
The spectacular break also undermined a cherry blossom tree sitting on top of the burst pipe, and led to severe cracks on the road.

The tree had to be taken down due to erosion.
City crews were busy into the early evening digging up the street. Officials say the cleanup is expected to take weeks, but the full extent of the damage is not yet known.
