Affinity Water say the burst water main in Folkestone is taking longer to repair than first anticipated.
The affected water main is on Churchill Avenue, behind Downs Road and hundreds of gallons of water have been gushing down the road.
The issues with the Affinity Water supply is predominantly affecting the CT19 postcode.
They promised to provide an update at 17.20 but as of 18.20 there has been nothing new since their website report earlier this afternoon:
If you are in the area but do still have a supply, Affinity Water also advised that residents store some water for drinking in case the supply has to be switched off to complete repairs.
Police attended the scene this morning to assist with traffic cone management.
Residents have reported water officials handing out bottles of water in the affected area.
