NIGHTMARE SCENARIO

No Water for 300K in W. Virginia

Roughly 300,000 residents of West Virginia are unable to use their tap water for the third straight day after a chemical spill into the area’s water supply. The problem will continue into the week, as authorities say it will take several more days to properly test the water to make sure it is safe for consumption. The state capital, Charleston, has been all but shut down, with its schools, restaurants, and businesses remaining closed. Authorities are still trying to find out how the coal-processing chemical spilled from a containment tank on Thursday morning.
