SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Some streets in Scripps Ranch were blocked Friday morning due to a water main break that led to flooding in the area.

The rupture was initially reported at around 4 a.m. at 10410 Treena Street, at Falcon Way, in front of the Scripps Ranch High School campus.

However, it was later determined that the main break and strong water flow was coming from a stretch of nearby Scripps Ranch Boulevard.

Authorities at the scene blocked impacted streets and issued a Sig Alert to warn drivers to avoid Scripps Ranch Boulevard, between Scripps Lake Drive and Hibert Street.

San Diego Police opened a stretch Scripps Lake Drive so Scripps Ranch High students and faculty could make a right turn onto Scripps Ranch Boulevard to get to school.

School officials said Friday morning that classes would go on as scheduled.

Multiple city crews were at the scene working to turn off the water and assess any road damage.

A city representative said some area residents could experience low water pressure in light of the main break situation.

The cause of the water main break is unknown; it is not immediately clear if any homes or businesses were affected by flooding.
