Thorp schools closed for second day due to broken water mains

Water Main Break
Water Main Break

THORP, WI (WTAQ) - Schools are closed for a second straight day in a west central Wisconsin community hit by a series of broken water mains.

WEAU-TV in Eau Claire said another main broke in Thorp during the night -- and schools were again shut down due to the unstable status of the community's water pressure.

Residents of Thorp -- in the northwest part of Clark County -- have been under an advisory to boil their water before drinking, cooking, or brushing their teeth with it.

Deep frost has caused five water main breaks to occur the past couple days.
