In the early morning overnight hours on Thursday, a water main break closed Commercial Street between Charter and Hanover Streets. Utility responded and shut off power in some buildings, including the U.S. Coast Guard base. By rush hour, the water stopped flowing restoring traffic flow on one side of the street. Mounds of mud and sand covered Commercial Street and into the parking lot of the base. Crews were still working under the street on Thursday morning around the Greenough Lane area.
