A water main break closes down two block of Douglas Street in west Wichita.

It was discovered just before 6:30 Tuesday morning on Douglas between Kessler and Knight that's just east of West Street.

Water is also filling the streets near Mayberry Cultural and Fine Arts Magnet Middle School and Lincoln Elementary School. We have a call in to the Wichita Public School district to see if there is an impact at the schools today. 

In the meantime, officials are asking drivers to avoid Douglas in the area until they can get it controlled. Repairs are expected to be completed around 4 p.m.
