Neighbors told Channel 11 because of the cold temperatures this weekend, water continued to flow down the road and then freeze overnight into several inches of ice.

Pennsylvania American Water said crews are salting the area, and the break is scheduled for repair on Monday. It’s unclear if any residents lost water because of the break.

Another water main broke Sunday afternoon -- this one an 8-inch main on Lowrie Street near Ley Street in Troy Hill.

PWSA said water in that area was out until 9 p.m. Officials said 732 people were affected, but they brought water buffalos to the field at Garner and Herman streets.
