A town known for trying to keep water out is having to bring it in. In Oslo, contractors and city crews are working to get the water to residents after a major water pipe broke over the weekend.

A temporary water line was put in place yesterday but that froze up overnight. Crews are now replacing a 30 foot section of pipe to restore service. They will work overnight to try and get the water back on by tomorrow evening. In the meantime the city is providing drinking water in bottles and gallon jugs to help people get by. Residents can pick up the water at the city office and the elderly can call to have it delivered. The shifting of the ground and older pipes are to blame for the break.
