A water main break in New Bern left several businesses without any water to operate. That includes two restaurants which were forced to close.
The break, on Neuse Boulevard near the Stallings Parkway intersection, was fixed late Thursday afternoon.
The city says some 190 customers were without water.
Residents and businesses in the area are now being told to boil their water before using it for consumption. The boil advisory will last until tests come back and confirm that the water is safe to drink.
