JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Many drivers passing through Northview Street were asking if there had been an earthquake in Jackson. There were huge cracks in the asphalt with water gushing through.

The mini-geyser is near Dotty's Daycare and the owner says she has been calling the city water department since three Thursday afternoon. Dorothy Moore says she was told the department was in the middle of a shift change but would send a crew out.

Late Thursday evening Moore said the water was still running and she is taking precautions to protect her building.

Dorothy Moore told us, "asphalt is breaking like in several places and the water is constantly running and I put blankets down in the inside of my door in case the water comes up to the door and floods my building out. If it floods the building out I will not be able to work tomorrow, my children won't be coming to school tomorrow."

Moore says the situation is dangerous for her business and the children she cares for, but it is also a hazard for drivers who speed through.
