SAN DIEGO – A broken water main flooded several businesses in the Morena-area Friday morning.

An 8-inch water main broke in the 4900 block of Naples Place early Friday, according to city water spokesman Arian Collins. Two dozen locations were without water service.

Furniture, computers, store merchandise and other items inside four businesses were damaged as a result of the flooding, a witness said.

Hlai Ghazi owns Kitchen Boutique. She walked into three to four inches water inside her business. She said she suffered millions in damages.

She was getting ready to hold a grand opening early next year, not those plans are ruined.

"It's hitting me every minute," said Ghazi. "We have been working so hard for the grand opening now I don't know what is going to happen."

Water service was restored by 6:30 p.m., Collins said.

The second storm to roll across the region in a week dropped rain and brought thunderstorms throughout San Diego County Thursday.
