(NECN: Josh Brogadir, Newton, Mass.) - Call this a run on bottled water.
Just a few hours after word spread about a major water main break, they were all out at Star Market in the Auburndale village of Newton, Mass.
"It's terrible I'm so stressed. I need to bathe my little children. I don't know, we might have to go to another town," said Sharon Briansky, of the Waban village of Newton.
Her concerns justified with a 2 year old and a 6 week old on board.
We asked Adrienne Altobelli, of Newton, if she went in to the store to try to get water and there was none.
"Exactly. Which is what most people are trying to do. I think everyone's been asking," Altobelli said, adding that she is planning to bring water for a big group for ultimate frisbee tryouts.
This woman was one of the lucky ones - she stocked up for a party and should be good for awhile. Plus, she knows a thing or two about water.
"I work in the wastewater field and I used to work in the water field, so I know how long these things take and it could take a couple of weeks in my opinion," said Lisa Dallaire, of Newton.
And so the boiling begins.
This will be a familiar sight potentially for awhile in 30 towns and cities in eastern Massachusetts.
Back at Star, there were many lonely, empty carts...being pulled around the store.
And a bottleneck, where the bottled water should be.
We said there was no water, well there was one bottle left.
"I don't know who will have it, me, the kids, or the dog. It feels great," joked Maria Ekstrom, of Newton.
Maria: I got the last one, dog, child, etc.,
"(I bought) flavored water. We have some water left in the house," said Eric Bobby, of the Auburndale village of Newton.
Star Market is expecting to have water back on the shelves at 10:30am Sunday. Shaw's/Star Market issued this statement Sunday:
