City crews have managed to stop the flooding on 8th Street East in Saskatoon and reopen a stretch of road that was closed for most of Sunday morning.

Eastbound lanes on 8th Street East at Clarence Avenue and westbound lanes at Wiggins Avenue were closed because of a large amount of water from a water main break.

Police said there was flooding from the 1000 block to 1200 block of 8th Street East.

The water was coming from the basement of a house on the corner of Munroe Avenue. Power to the house was shut down and its occupants were evacuated because of the rising water levels.
