WAKE FOREST, N.C. (AP) - Water lines supplying communities across North Carolina are failing due to the extreme cold.

Repair crews were at work Sunday from Wake Forest in Wake County to Marshville in Union County after water lines broke.

Cumberland County’s water utility on Saturday directed consumers to boil water because cracking water mains increased the potential for harmful bacteria.

WCTI reported that a sprinkler pipe burst inside a terminal at Pitt-Greenville Airport Saturday night. There were no flights on Saturday and there was minimal damage.
