Good morning, Sioux City. This is Adam Lewis and you are tuned to KL&R on this delightful March 3rd for all your news so you’ll know what’s going on.

This story coming right out of good old Sioux City….

Eleven businesses in a strip mall on Gordon Drive are all wet after a water main burst early Wednesday morning.

Water and mud spewed from the break in the main and into businesses at Sioux City's Gordon plaza.

"We walked in to open the store," said Beverly Gonzalez, Dollar etc. manager, "and there was mud and water all over."

Water began leaking overnight from a fire water main beneath this utility building.

"The first reaction was one of surprise, of course," said Roan Gruis, Little Chicago Deli Manager, "The owner got here at four o'clock and the water was running out the front and back doors."

When the water drained, the stores were left with a quarter-inch of mud to cleanup.

Half of the affected businesses reopened by mid-afternoon. There’s no word yet on what caused the water main to break.

And now for your State news…..

An Urbandale man whose girlfriend called police after she recognized his face in a surveillance photograph was sentenced Friday to 20 years in federal prison for seven bank robberies.
Richard Matzke, 58, was arrested in March 2002 as a suspect in more than 24 bank robberies in several states. He was convicted of seven Nebraska heists and was sentenced Friday in Omaha.
Several robbery witnesses described a man who roughly fit Matzke's physical description, but none provided authorities with the license number of a getaway car.
Matzke's arrest last year came after his fiancée tipped off police. Kim Ford called police to say she recognized him in a surveillance photo published in The Des Moines Register from an Illinois robbery in February.
Matzke's criminal history includes 11 drunken-driving convictions, a 1993 bank robbery conviction and a decades-old escape charge.
