Tips to keep your pipes from freezing as temperatures drop

Utility crews are working hard all over the state to restore power, but with temperatures dropping dangerously low, water pipes freezing could be a big issue in the next couple days.

Department of Safety's Public Information Officer, Michael Todd, says there are a couple ways you can keep your pipes from freezing if you don't have heat.

1. Leave your taps dripping to prevent freezing

2. Insulate your pipes with newspapers or towels

3. Seal off parts of your home like putting towels under doorways to insulate and retain heat inside your home.

If you don't have heat, Todd says, stay with friends or family or in a shelter. To find the closest shelter call 211.
