TULSA, Okla. - Officials with the city of Tulsa say they have seen more than 50 water line breaks in a week, and a total of 87 since Dec. 13.
They say the repairs usually take between four and six hours, but because it is so cold, the repairs are taking between six and eight hours.
They say nine water breaks took place on Tuesday alone.
Officials say the breaks are happening all across the city, and all 200-plus employees with the water and sewer departments are helping with the repairs.
A massive fire line leak in downtown Tulsa in the Brady District had water spilling into the road and filling parking spaces.
Water from a break near Lewis and I-44 created ice that sent cars crashing, including a crash where a truck went through a woman's fence.
The property owner sent FOX23 a photo of the damage:
Officials said they were able to fix water line problems Friday night.
