Water main break prompts boil alert

ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A water main break is causing quite a mess along Sandpiper Avenue in Royal Palm Beach.

We're told there was so much pressure, a mailbox shot right out of the ground and 15-feet into the air. Crews have been working overnight to cut the water off.

A water boil advisory is now in effect for the surrounding neighborhood.
