OSLO, MN -- Residents of Oslo are asked to boil ALL water before use or use boiled water until further notice following a large water main break earlier Thursday.

According to Oslo Mayor Scott Kosmatka, the water main break is substantial and is causing huge problems. He is asking that residents refrain from using water in their homes until further notice. And a reminder that the boil order is STILL in effect.

It's unclear at this point what caused the water main break. But the mayor says the extreme cold weather this winter, and then the warm up this week caused the ground to shift and they assume that's what caused the break in the line.
