BECKLEY - Frozen pipes are a common concern as we continue to deal with cold temperatures.

AAA of Beckley suggested some things you can do to protect your home during extreme cold temperatures. AAA said it's not uncommon to deal with frozen pipes, which could lead to pipes bursting and water damage. Here are some tips to help prevent your pipes from freezing:

Crissy Gray from AAA, “it's very common, even if you have copper pipes to plastic pipes, both of them can bust, so you're not immune to this. It's very common in this area an especially with these types of temperatures. We just need to be more aware and just remember to keep those areas warm as much as possible.”

AAA urged everyone to take these precautions.
