Crews were continuing to make repairs to a water main that broke in San Francisco's Cow Hollow neighborhood this morning.

The 8-inch water supply pipe ruptured at about 7:10 a.m. near Filbert and Broderick streets, a San Francisco Water Department dispatcher said.

The water was initially pouring on to surface streets but has been controlled by utility crews who responded to the incident, the dispatcher said.

A few dozen homes in the immediate area were still without water service at 12:30 p.m.
