Weekend Ice Storm Wreaks Havoc On Portland Pipes

(Portland, OR) -- The city is still cleaning up after hundreds of pipes burst across Portland as temperatures plunged over the holiday weekend. The Portland Water Bureau says they responded to over a thousand emergency shut-off calls, from residents to restaurants and more. There were 20 water main breaks last Thursday and Friday alone. Temperatures were consistently in the low double digits, sometimes single digits during the weekend ice storm, and wind chill factors made it feel ever colder.
