SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- City of San Diego crews worked to repair a water main break that flooded several blocks in the Mission Beach area and prompted a boil water notice for some affected residents.

The flooding brought water up to the rims of parked vehicles and slowed traffic through the 2700 block of Bayside Lane around 4 p.m. on Wednesday. A sinkhole also formed as a result of the break and flooding.

Public utility crews determined a 4-inch water main ruptured but there was no word on what caused the break.

Repair efforts were ongoing as of Thursday morning.

City officials issued a precautionary boil water notice for at least 24 customers in the 2700 block of Bayside Lane. The notice urges customers to boil water for one minute before consuming. The boil water notice is in effect until further notice.

According to officials, water service is expected to be restored by 9 a.m. Thursday.

Officials said: "City-provided water trucks and some bottled water are available to customers at 2700 and 2735 Mission Blvd. (near San Luis Rey and near Avalon). Customers are asked to bring containers to fill water from the trucks."
