NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The bitter cold weather from earlier this week is still causing headaches here in Nashville.

Metro water crews were dealing with as many as 12 water main breaks on Friday, including one on Union Street downtown.

Officials said the temperatures are rising, causing the ground to thaw and shift.  As the shifting occurs, the water mains become unstable.

Crews worked throughout the weekend as more pipes burst.

Officials are asking for patience while they make the repairs.
