St. Pete traffic: Northbound lane of 4th Street closed near 62nd Ave. N after water main break

Lightning strike ruptures water line on 4th St. N.

One northbound lane of 4th Street is blocked Thursday due to a water main break the day before.

The water main break happened on 4th Street near 62nd Avenue North around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Water service is out in part of St. Petersburg due to a lightning strike.

Shortly after 2 p.m., a lightning strike in the 6100 block of 4th Street North caused a power pole to topple, rupturing a 12-inch water main.

This took out water service to customers along and east of 4th Street from SE Madison Circle through 62nd Avenue. The city tweeted that only four customers were affected.

St. Petersburg Water Resources personnel are on the scene.
