The number of properties with frozen water lines topped 2,400 over the weekend and the waiting list for thawing services continues to climb.

The latest frozen pipes update from city hall says there are now 2,406 properties that have reported frozen water lines, an increase of 47 from Friday.

City hall was able to restore full water services to 38 properties over the weekend, but that has left the number of properties on the waiting list for thawing services at 1,372, an increase of nine since Friday.

The city provided temporary hose connection to 27 properties over the weekend.
