LITTLE SILVER -

A boil water advisory has been issued for parts of Little Silver following a water main break Thursday morning.

The advisory affects about two dozen homes in the area of Birch and Branch avenues.

The break happened Thursday morning and almost immediately flooded the roadway. Traffic was shut down in the area while repairs were made.

New Jersey American Water says that a boil water advisory is issued only as a precaution any time there is a loss of water pressure. There is no evidence of contamination.

Repairs were expected to take until at least 8 p.m.
