Water pipes still vulnerable after Arctic Blast

SHREVEPPORT, LA (KSLA) - Plumbers are still busy making repairs throughout the Ark-La-Tex, in the wake of that arctic blast that gripped the area last week,

Pipes are still being affected.

Water from a broken pipe kept rushing to the surface between two homes near Gilbert Drive and Elmwood Street in Shreveport.

Crews did come out and inspect the break, but residents waited hours for them to return and actually shut the water off.

Despite an end to the freeze-thaw cycle that causes pipes to break, many, it seems, are still vulnerable.
