A water main break created a massive geyser that sent water flowing into the air in Montgomery County Wednesday morning.

The break happened about 6:30 a.m. at Washington and Cherry Streets in Conshohocken.

SkyForce10 was over the scene shortly after the main erupted and it showed water shooting approximately 30 feet in the air.[[365130771, C]]

Due to the sub-freezing temperatures, the water from the main was instantly freezing on power lines, trees and even a nearby building.

Crews were able to shut the water main off about 7:30 a.m. Electrical crews also had to knock off the icicles off the power lines.[[365118591, C]]

The water main break is located near the SEPTA Norristown line, but a SEPTA official told NBC10 service was not being impacted.
