    HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. - Families in a Huntersville neighborhood spent Thanksgiving with no water. A line ruptured Thursday at the intersection of Devonshire Drive and Stonemont Road, causing water to spray more than 15 feet in the air.

    One neighbor told Eyewitness News the area where all the water shot up had become soaked earlier in the day. She was worried a sinkhole was forming,

    "The ground was like coming up, and if you walked anywhere, it was sinking in," Alison Dillworth said.

    Instead, water shot up like a geyser, affecting Thanksgiving celebrations.

    "We have no water now, so I don't know how we're going to clean up tonight or do anything," Dillworth said.

    Crews said the cold weather is to blame.
