TULSA, Okla. - Water main breaks have been popping up all over Tulsa.

FOX23 checked and City of Tulsa crews were working on a total of five water main breaks Tuesday.

However, the water main break at Sixth Street and Lewis Avenue has flooded the street, making a convenience store owner upset with the city.

The water main break flooded the area in front of his store just before 2 a.m.

At one point the deepest spot looked to be more than 2 feet deep.

Crews had to shut off the water to an apartment complex, more than 60 homes and a convenience store.

"She called me and said, 'We are out of water,” said the convenience store owner, Moe Sepahdand.

Sepahdand told FOX23 he saw this mess coming.

"This is the place that several times I’d called in the last two months and informed the city of Tulsa to see if they could come and fix the leak," he said.

He said he got zero help and now his businesses are taking a hit.

"We have a small restaurant that we open it up at 11 o'clock. So obviously today we can't open it," Sepahdand said.

We contacted the city of Tulsa for a comment and will let you know what they say when they get back to us.
