A water main break impacted some businesses in Skokie.

In one incident, water gushed from inside a utility room at the Barnes and Noble store at Touhy and Central.

Water had to be shut off to the area affecting several businesses including a Chipotle and a Corner Bakery Café.

The Skokie Fire Department estimates several hundred gallons of water a minute were flowing out of that main.
