The area around Madison Square Park at 23rd Street and Broadway is underwater this morning owing to a reported water-main break. The 23rd Street subway station on the N, Q, and R line has been ordered evacuated after water started pouring into the entrances, and water has been gushing out of manhole covers in the area. (Needless to say, delays are expected.)

Twitter and Instagram users were quick to report the flood with amazing photos and on-the-ground updates:

Update: The MTA released some incredible footage of water pouring into the 23rd St. subway station, as well as a photo showing just how high the water had risen:
