HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Board of Water Supply crews responded Sunday to a 12-inch water main break in an Aiea neighborhood.

A large sinkhole opened up near 98-1724 Nahele Street near Kiawe Street and Ipuala Loop. Traffic cones were up and the area was blocked off due to safety.

BWS said eight customers were without water, and a water wagon will be set up in the area.

Water officials anticipate repair work to continue throughout the day.
