Bundle up, it's still freezing outside

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Local students will need to bundle up this morning, as the deep freeze continues across Southern Arizona. 

Besides bundling up the kids extra good this morning, residents need to remember to wrap their pipes.  It was definitely a busy weekend for Tucson Water crews as the hard freeze did some serious damage to plenty of pipes. 

They received over 400 calls from people because of burst or leaking pipes. Some of the pipes were actually wrapped, and still burst.  A lot of those were on rooftops, but some burst that were obviously cracked or broken and were not covered. 

The experts say even if the pipes were covered last year or the year before, residents need to check the insulation and make sure it is still good, and if not replace it; otherwise they will still end up with burst pipes.
