A water main break flooded several homes near Weston and Black Creek on Feb. 18, 2014. CITYNEWS.

A watermain break caused major flooding for some homeowners in the Weston Road and Black Creek Drive area on Tuesday morning.

The break happened underneath a lawn on Hilldale Road around 4:20 a.m.

Toronto Hydro is investigating.

Watermain breaks are often caused by rapidly fluctuating temperatures. The freeze-thaw cycle damages the underground pipes, causing them to burst.
