CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- West Virginia American Water says current below-average temperatures across the state may be causing customers to experience no water due to frozen pipes within their homes.

As of 10 p.m., here is the latest outage:

Farmdale Road in BarboursvilleOnly affecting residents along parts of Farmdale Road, Water Street, and Main Street.

All other issues in Cabell County have been resolved, including a water main break along Davis Creek in Huntington that had affected about 300 customers.

Late Tuesday night, a water main break was reported at Kanawha Terrace and South Walnut Street in St. Albans. It was not immediately known how many people are affected by that issue.

In the Charleston area, the main breaks along South Ruffner Road and George's Drive in St. Albans have been fixed. A main break on Woodcliff Road also was fixed. Crews remained out investigating some customer complaints that appear to be pipes frozen within those customers' homes.

Earlier Tuesday, boil water advisories had been issued in many of the areas as precautions.

Meanwhile, there are sporadic outages for customers around the area. WVAW says they currently have 30-40 work orders in their system. They will have crews out checking each order to determine if it's an isolated or widespread issue.

WVAM suggests if you have no water service at your house, check with neighbors to determine if they are experiencing the same situation. If your neighbors have water, you may have a frozen service pipe, or frozen pipes within your home. If your neighbors are also experiencing loss of water, call 1-800-685-8660 to report the outage.
