TEXARKANA —A hard freeze warning is in effect until 10 a.m. Saturday for Texarkana, Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas.
The warning starts at 6 tonight.
Sub-freezing temperatures of 10 to 20 degrees are expected, according to the National Weather Service in Shreveport.
Hard freeze conditions will result in damage to exposed pipes and additional water main breaks are expected. Power outages continue across portions of the area leaving some without means of heating their home and increasing the risk of frozen indoor plumbing as well.
To prevent additional bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
