Seniors displaced after pipe bursts at housing facility

Posted: Updated:

The cold weather we saw earlier this week is being blamed for bursting pipes at a retirement community in Amarillo.

More than a dozen senior citizens were displaced from Plemons Court, after the incident on Friday night.

Security tells us a pipe burst upstairs, causing water damage in at least 12 of the facility's apartments. Residents who were living there had to be evacuated.

Officials say everyone who was impacted by the burst has been relocated to other facilities or is staying with their family.
