CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Heath Harrison, Kallie Cart, Rick Lord) – Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency Thursday and residents in eight West Virginia counties were told not to use their water due to a chemical leak.
West Virginia American Water has issued a public notice for their customers to not use their water, and the notice has now expanded to eight counties.
Kanawha, Boone, Putnam, Lincoln, Logan, Clay, Roane and Jackson counties were affected. The Culloden area of Cabell County was also also affected.
Can't believe there isn't a topic about this. I just saw this bit from my friend who gave people an update:
More specifically: Boone, Cabell, Clay, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Putnam and Roane counties
Also, the Walmarts and other stores there are being major butts* and have jacked up the price of bottled water to like $70. It’s absurd.
Oh Walmart. You can't help people couldn't you?
* Replaced with another word.
