Broken water main floods I-805 near border

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Several lanes of southbound Interstate 805 in the Otay Mesa area were flooded during Friday morning's commute after a water main ruptured nearby on Palm Avenue, prompting an hours-long closure in the area, authorities said.

Heavy flooding along the Palm Avenue offramp was reported shortly after 6 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

No injuries were immediately reported but at least one sedan spun out and stalled in a right-hand lane, according to the CHP.

A SigAlert was issued at 6:17 a.m. as the two right-hand lanes were closed. Around 8:45 a.m., the CHP reported that the closure would likely last for another four hours, or until about 1 p.m.
