CAPE CORAL, Fla- A water main break shut down SW 20th Avenue in Cape Coral for several hours this morning. The pipe burst just after 3am and created a small sinkhole that's about 6 to 8 feet in diameter and 5 to 6 feet deep. About 30 homes are being advised they should boil their water before using it to drink or cook the next 48 hours.
