Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - Crews worked to repair a water main break next to the courthouse in downtown Lake Charles.

The break left a significant amount of water on Lakeshore Drive, from Kirby Street south to Clarence Street.

A company trying to run a new gas line broke the water main.

Some parish buildings had little or no water, leading to some offices closing for the day.

The main was hit around noon and the water shut off about 2 p.m.

City crews worked in the rain to repair the broken main.
