BRADLEY - A water main break in Bradley leaves residents under a water boil advisory. 

The break occurred on Robert C. Byrd drive near 4th street in Bradley. Officials had to direct traffic while water flooded the roads before crews could fix the problem.  The Beckley Water Company arrived on scene around 8:30 a.m. Officials spoke with Newswatch about how often these types of breaks occur.

"We're not sure what caused it could possibly be a surge of pressure, we're not sure but we're going to have to open and cut the road, probably cut a piece of line in to replace the bad part, oh yeah it's a daily thing for us, there is leaks somewhere all the time," said Argle Cook of the Beckley Water Company.

The problem has been fixed but the area is still under water boil advisory until further notice.
