Water Main Break Sends CNBC Staffers Home

Police noticed the 30-inch main was broken about 8:30 a.m., and it burst later in the afternoon, sending water gushing down 9W. Police had already closed two lanes of traffic to fix the broken main before it burst in the afternoon, said Lt. William LaRaia.

9W is the highway that runs in front of CNBC.

“CNBC’s broadcast operations have not been impacted,” a spokesperson tells TVNewser. “We did send home employees that are non-essential to broadcast operations.”
