NH riding winter's roller coaster
A wintry mix is expected to change to rain today. But the National Weather Service said temperatures will fall dramatically tonight and will not climb above 20 Tuesday and Wednesday.
"It shattered actually," Poulin said. "There was quite a bit of water inside, and it spread to floors in the stores on either side."
"We responded to a couple dozen water breaks," said Poulin. "Every engine company had at least two or three water breaks they were called to Sunday."
"Anything they can do to help us locate a hydrant quickly is helpful," said Poulin. "And with the roofs, the snow acts like a sponge, and with rain forecast the snow will soak that up and get heavy very quickly."
The rupture caused a loss in pressure and the formation of air bubbles in the forced hot water system. The air in the system kept properly heated water from reaching some radiators, he said.
MHA workers took readings in several apartments and found temperatures ranging from 62-73 degrees on Saturday evening and no apartments with a temperature of under 65 degrees by midday on Sunday.
Dunfey noted that community rooms in the building had adequate heat and could accommodate residents if they found their apartments unbearably cold.
