An underground water main broke near Dwight Way and caused flooding in the nearby streets early Thursday morning.

Service will be disrupted as East Bay Municipal Utility District, or EBMUD, is turning the water off and is working to fix the break, according to Berkeley Fire Department Assistant Chief Keith May.
