SOPHIA, W.Va. — Hundreds of people in Raleigh County have been without water this week after subzero temperatures caused pipes to freeze and burst, the Register-Herald reported.

Firefighters were distributing water to residents at fire stations.

One of those departments was Sophia City Fire & Rescue, which was distributing drinking water and water for other purposes.

In one of its Facebook posts, the department offered to deliver water to those who could not get to the station.
