[UPDATE BELOW] A water main break on East Houston around 11 a.m. has left the road flooded and several restaurants, including Katz's Deli, stuck dealing with the mess.
According to FDNY, the burst occurred at 10:45 a.m., sending water pouring into Katz's Deli and two adjoining restaurants. Workers are in the process of "de-watering" the premises, though the beloved deli remains open, as always. Now enjoy this harrowing video.
