The extreme cold is starting to have an impact on underground water pipes.
Last week a water main in Wilson burst in front of the courthouse because of the deep freeze, and other cities here in the east are starting to see similar problems.
In Kinston they're seeing about three new water leaks a day because of the cold, while Greenville Utilities says it's had a half dozen breaks because of the cold weather.
Unlike your water pipes, there's not much cities can do to protect the underground water lines other that to hope this cold snap soon ends.
