MAUD, TX (KSLA) -

Maud, TX schools will dismiss at 1 p.m. due to the water outage caused by a major line break Friday morning.

The rupture of a 6-inch line on Travis St. in the southeastern part of the city happened around 10:30 a.m. and left the entire city without water.

Crews are on the scene to repair it. They don't know how long it will take to or what caused the water line break.

As a precaution, a boil advisory has been issued for all human and animal consumption until further notice while tests are completed for any bacteria or microbes that could contaminate drinking water.

City Secretary Polly Moore says the boil advisory will last at least through Tuesday because the company that conducts the tests won't be open over the weekend.
