Route 8 remained open, but it was restricted to one lane in the area of the break.
Water from the break streamed into the parking lot of a shopping plaza. Crews said about a half dozen businesses were without water service.
I’ve checked with multiple businesses here in Hampton: Planet Fitness, Model Cleaners & CVS. None of them have water because of the water main break at the corner of McNeal & Route 8. @WPXI pic.twitter.com/Smb5GC1Uvq— Mike Holden (@WPXIMikeHolden) November 8, 2018
