hydrant breakKANSAS CITY, Mo. — A broken fire hydrant caused some delays Wednesday morning near 39th and Main in Kansas City, Mo. Water buckled an area of the road and crews shut down two lanes of traffic. A salt truck is expected to distribute salt to help melt any ice that builds up.

Water Services said they responded to two other water line breaks overnight — one at 84th and Wayne and 92nd and Western Hills Drive in Kansas City.

Crews said when temperatures make a drastic drop, water lines and fire hydrants can break. They expect to see other breaks this week due to fluctuating weather conditions.
