For the third time in the last two years, we’ve got a big water main break on Belle Isle.

This one is a geyser. At 9 Island Avenue, building management used the building communication system to tell all residents at 10:15 a.m. that the water  main on Belle Isle had ruptured, and all units would be without water for an undetermined period.

Update at 11:07 a.m.: The “geyser” has been capped and city workers are on the scene. 9 Island residents have been told to turn off their air conditioning units because the water is off.

Update at 11:30 a.m.: Water leak capped, service to be restored shortly, boil 48-hour water order expected.

12:55 p.m. update: Power service is returning, but a boil water order will be in effect for 3 Island Avenue, Island Terrace and 9 Island Avenue condos for 48 hours, according to Miami Beach spokeswoman Nannette Rodriguez.
