ROCKVILLE, Md. (7News) — At least seven families have been displaced after a water main break sent water pouring into terrace-level units at the Plymouth Woods condo and townhome community in Rockville.
Shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday, brown, muddy water sent people fleeing for higher ground. A 32-year-old woman, who asked not to be identified, provided 7News with cell phone video of her flooded apartment.
Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service responded to the building, located at 872 College Parkway in Rockville. It helped evacuate people from the garden-style structure.
MCFRS spokesperson Pete Piringer says at least seven families will be displaced and residents of several other buildings will have their water cut off.
The building structure was compromised and was determined to be unsafe to occupy by a building inspector, Piringer tweeted.
Buses were requested to move residents to temporary shelter.
