The heavy downpours accompanying the storms and a water main break may have caused some basements to flood on the South Side. Crews were out trying to repair the break today near 85th and Dorchester.

Witnesses described water rushing up from the sewer like a fountain. Then quickly rising in the streets and up to area houses.

There's no word yet on what may have caused the break. Some houses wound up with two feet of water in their basements.
