NEW YORK (AP) - A water main break near the Holland Tunnel in Lower Manhattan is causing some subway disruption.

It happened at the intersection of Varick and Spring streets around 6 a.m. Friday.

No. 1 subway train service is suspended in both directions between South Ferry Street and 42nd street.

Most of the water has been trapped in storm drains. There is some minor flooding with water flowing south along Varick toward the tunnel.

According to WABC-TV (http://7ny.tv/1slJ4o0 ), the city Department of Environment Protection says the 12-inch water main appears to be in the middle of the intersection.

Con Edison is on the scene. Steam service has been shut off in the area.

Tunnel traffic has not been affected.
