Gov. John Kasich says water will be flowing into the Toledo area from all corners of Ohio to help the 400,000 people who are being warned not to drink the city’s water.

Toledo’s mayor says water is coming from Akron, Cincinnati and even a prison near Columbus.

I was wondering about that. Last year there were a couple incidences of Middle Eastern “tourists” visiting Water sources. IIRC

They’re apparently even buying up the water in My neck of the woods. My mother tells me that they’re out of water in Brooklyn Michigan and they’re getting hit in Chelsea and Jackson.

Thinking I should run the hose out to the gate and put up a sign to sell some well water.

Interesting they're not using Cleveland water or any other water from Lake Erie. It might make sense to stock up on supplies just in case other Lake Erie sourced water gets contaminated.

(ohmygosh, isn't this how panics start?)

They pulled all the fruits & veggies off the grocery shelves too!

“Or boil it?”

No, it just makes it worse it said on another thread. I think it said it makes the toxin more concentrated.

Which kind of makes you wonder.

They got one letter right. I love the singular “Bottle Water” as well.
