A 6-inch water main break flooded a Kuhn's grocery store on Banksville Road early Monday morning.

The break occurred near the Pittsburgh store's loading dock, said Kuhn's president Joe Dentici. When the water level rose above the dock, more than 4 feet high, it started flooding the store, he said.

The store reopened just before noon after cleaning up and passing an inspection by the Allegheny County Health Department, Kuhn's advertising manager Dan Sakala said.

Crews restored service at 2 p.m., said Gary Lobaugh, spokesman for Penn American Water.
