JERSEY CITY - Crews are continuing work to repair a massive sinkhole in Jersey City.

Officials say a water main broke at the intersection of Garfield and Linden avenues this morning. PSE&G crews were on the scene to turn off a nearby gas line, which was not impacted by the break or sinkhole, as a precaution.

United Water said between 60 and 70 families did not have water throughout the day. The utility company says that service has been restored.

The city has posted no parking signs near the sinkhole, which will be in effect through May 30.
