BRONX - A burst underground pipe flooded Lebanon Street businesses Monday.

Some owners say they never thought of worrying about flooding and did not insure their businesses against it.

"We'll be pumping all night tonight and all day tomorrow," business owner Lewis Mathews says.

Workers will have to wait until the water is pumped out before they will know if they still have jobs.
