Some military families displaced as freezing temperatures cause pipes to burst at several bases

Some families at military bases caught in this week’s freezing temperatures are faced with moving from base housing due to broken water pipes and no utilities, while others are banding together to support one another during the crisis.

At least eight bases remained closed Thursday in states including Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, with many preparing to stay closed Friday. Most will spend an entire week with only essential personnel on base as extremely cold weather has created dangerous conditions across southern portions of the country. The region is not accustomed to multiple days of below freezing weather, snow or substantial ice accumulation, which has led to unnavigable roads, broken water pipes and overwhelmed utilities.
