(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The residents of a northwest suburban senior living facility were spending another day away from their homes because there's no electricity and no water there.

More than 100 people live at the McHenry Villa Senior Living facility in McHenry.

The director says that on Monday, the basement flooded after a water main burst, and the facility had to be evacuated that day.

Director Noreen Zaio says the water is still off and the electricity is still off. And with the power being off, there's no elevator service.

Officials have said that some of the residents are staying with family and some in hotels.

Zaio says it's still not clear what caused the pipe to break.
