Utilities truck falls into hole after main break in West Palm Beach

Posted at 3:28 PM, May 04, 2017

UPDATE: Whole Foods, restaurants and the Food Court at the Palm Beach Outlets area are set to reopen Friday at their regular opening times, after an incident with the city of West Palm Beach water line forced them to temporarily shut down. 

EARLIER STORY:

A truck from the West Palm Beach Public Utilities fell into a hole following a water main break Thursday.

Employees for the utilities department were working on a fire hydrant when the main broke and flooded an area near Best Buy on Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., fire rescue said.

Work to repair the main began shortly after the break.

Due to the break, the nearby Palm Beach Outlets has closed its food court and restaurants until further notice, because it gets its water from the city's main water line.

All stores remain open.
