ATLANTA — A massive water main break sent water gushing into neighborhoods and flooded a major highway near Atlanta on Wednesday morning, forcing more than 100 schools to close and shutting down businesses miles away.
The break in a major transmission main also caused water woes for hospitals, closed a nearby mall and led to low water pressure to thousands of residents across DeKalb County, a major suburban district northeast of Atlanta. Hours later, authorities said, water pressure was still being restored to the community as urgent repairs were being carried out.
