NORTH AUGUSTA -- A sprinkler system iced over a residential street this morning holding up traffic for a North Augusta subdivision.

North Augusta Department of Safety officers were dispatched to Bergen Road near Highway 25 around 7 a.m., said a dispatch supervisor. De-icing the road in front of the Wando Woodlands subdivision held up traffic for about an hour.

Temperatures dropped below freezing around 2 a.m. at Daniel Field Airport, said Dan Miller, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in West Columbia, S.C. Temperatures dropped as low as 20 degrees this morning.
