3 Feb 11
- Temperatures in Tucson fell to 18 degrees overnight and dipped even lower in surrounding areas, according to this article on Arizona Public Media.

The unprecedented cold triggered utility outages which, in turn cut off gas and water to thousands of residents across Southern Arizona.

Some 14,000 Southwest Gas customers were left without gas and heat, while 2,000 Tucson Water customers remained without water.

Officials with Tucson Water say the outage was brought on by the extreme cold, which caused electronic controls at various reservoir and booster sites to malfunction, automatically shutting down pumps. Other customers don’t have water due to frozen or burst pipes within their homes or businesses, says Tucson Water.

Reports from the Tucson Police Department linked the cold to two deaths, as well.
