Water is off for some residents in the Opelousas area and will be off for the next few hours.

Mayor Julius Alsandor tells KATC there was a leak caused by a broken pipe, leading to the shutoff. Water is off in the Industrial Park area in northwest Opelousas, off Hwy 3043.

City crews are currently working to repair the leak.

A boil water advisory will be in effect until further notice once the water has been turned back on, the mayor says.
