BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio -- Water has been gushing into the air from an underground pipeline at Maud Hughes Road and Hamilton Mason Road since about midnight Wednesday.

That broken line has closed the intersection, which lies on the border between West Chester and Liberty townships.

More than 500 power outages were reported in the area starting at about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday. Crews are working to repair the line and restore power as quickly as possible.
