Local plumbers have been in high demand for the past few days. The freezing weather caused lots of plumbing issues for the Wiregrass area.
Heath Odoms is a part owner of Odom's Plumbing and Electricity, over the past few days his company has been getting numerous calls due to pipe damage.
“I mean it's been crazy the last couple of days,” said Odoms.
This has led a lot of Wiregrass residents without water. The wind chill was so severe that it caused pipes to bust all around town. This has caused an overflow of calls for plumbers.
"This don't happen everyday, and we're just trying to keep all of our customer's happy and do the best we can," said Odoms.
He wasn't the only plumber whose phone was ringing off the hook, Odom’s didn't expect the weather to cause this much of a problem for Dothan residents. Over the past 48 hours Odoms says that he has had between 55 to 70 calls.
Local businesses, houses and mobile homes have all been affected. Plumbers are bracing themselves for a busy week handling the leaks one by one.
