The streets of a residential neighborhood in Manchester, New Hampshire, have been flooded once again after the area suffered its second water main break in just over a month.

A resident reported the flooding just after 3 p.m. Tuesday when he saw water rushing down his street.

Clarke Street, West Clarke Street and a portion of Elm Street remained closed Tuesday night. Officials say the break should be fixed by the morning.

There were concerns that the historic former home of Gen. John Stark that sits along Elm Street would be flooded, but District Fire Chief Richard McGahey says there was minimal damage to the property.

The first main break in the neighborhood occurred a couple blocks away on Nov. 14. Officials say it's unclear what caused either of the breaks.
