    Valley View Terrace is a community filled with seniors and small children, and residents said the management didn't give out any space heaters.

    "They told us to close our windows and conserve any heat we have in there," Shawanda Cole said.

    The Washington County Housing Authority said it is buying new heaters immediatly and sending them over. Donora Fire and Rescue also dropped off several heaters.

    Several residents told Channel 11 they're thankful this didn't happen last week as temperatures plumeted to below zero.

    "It's not too bad because it's not too cold out today," Cole said.

    The leak was found to be underneath a parking lot, so crews are in the process of digging to the pipe so it can be repaired.
