Water poured onto Smith Street in downtown Winnipeg Sunday morning after a watermain break around noon.

Vehicles had to move slowly through the water, which was lapping up over the sidewalk.

Fire trucks and repair crews were on the scene soon after the break, but city officials could not immediately confirm when the break would be repaired.
