The record cold over the weekend was too much for the aging plumbing at the VA in Jamaica Plain. According to NECN, appointments at the facility are cancelled until at least Thursday.

The high-rise building, a well-known landmark for the South Huntington area, did not have to be evacuated, NECN reported. However, several patients were taken to other facilities.

WBUR reported that veterans who have appointments on Tuesday and Wednesday should call first. The main number at the 150 S. Huntington Ave. facility is 617-232-9500.
