Water main breaks across Northeast Ohio are turning roads and cars into sheets of ice as temperatures drop to the single digits.

On Brecksville Road, a water main break closes the entire road south of Rockside Road as sheets of ice form on the road.

Some residents in Tremont will need more than an ice scraper to get sheets of ice off their cars. 

In Akron, a water main break turned a hill into an icy mess— conditions better equipped for a sled or toboggan than a car.

Temperatures reached the lowest Northeast Ohio has seen in nearly three years with wind chills dropping below zero.
