CAPE CORAL, Fla - Utility crews worked diligently to fix a water main break in Cape Coral that happened around 1:00 a.m.

The Cape Coral Police Department said lightning struck a water pipe through the concrete and caused it to burst.

It affected approximately five businesses along Cape Coral Parkway, between Del Prado Boulevard and Southeast 17th Avenue. Those businesses were issued a boil water notice for the next week.
