NEWARK - Bitterly cold temperatures Sunday caused problems for some residents in Union City and Newark.

Frozen pipes resulted in a water main break in Newark, which shut down the area of Elm Street in the Ironbound. Police are advising drivers to stay clear of the area due to icy and dangerous conditions.

In Union City, a transformer explosion in the area of New York Avenue and 34th Street led to at least 4,000 residents without heat.

PSE&G crews were able to restore power within an hour, and police officers checked on nearby residents and also brought out a bus for anyone to come onto to stay warm.
