EAST BRIDGEWATER, MASS. (WHDH) - A broken dam in Halifax caused major flooding in East Bridgewater on Friday.

Around 10 a.m., police announced Pond Street near Robbins Pond was shut down due to the flooding, with numerous backyards and homes inundated with water throughout the area.

Officers say the road will remain closed until the water recedes and the bridge can be inspected for safety.

As of 3:25 p.m., waters remained high, with a SKY7 camera spotting dozens of water-logged properties, including an array of solar panels that was partially submerged.
