Several Niagara Falls Homes Still Have Frozen Pipes


NIAGARA FALLS, NY - Last week 2 On Your Side told you about more than a dozen homes with no running water in Niagara Falls, because their pipes are frozen.

On Monday, we're learning many of the problems have been corrected, but several more homes have been impacted because of the cold temperatures.

"Food's been in them since Sunday 8 a.m.," Dutton said.

Perhaps the media coverage of Hoffman’s recent passing is a good thing. We need to shine a spotlight on the drug epidemic that is sweeping through Western New York right now, paying no attention to the social status of the victims in its path.
