NEW ORLEANS-- Water from a broken 30 inch main is flooding several streets around Tulane University.

Claiborne Avenue between Calhoun Street and Audubon Avenue has ankle deep water flowing down the street.

The Sewerage and Water Board does have a work crew on the scene, and says that the broken pipe is very old and that they are currently turning off other lines to isolate the leak.

They also that that there is no need to issue a boil water advisory at this time because the pressure has not dropped below acceptable levels.

The far right lane of Claiborne Avenue is currently blocked off by safety cones that were put out by the NOPD.

Drivers should precede with caution when traveling in the area.
