Cleveland Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol, and the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office were all on the scene as parts of I-90 east and westbound were closed due to the high water.

According to a spokesperson from Cleveland Water, the break occurred in a 12-inch water main. The water is shut off at the broken main, however water pressure to area businesses and The Shoreline apartments is at full pressure.

Two Cleveland Police cruisers stalled out in the floodwaters.
