WV Chemical Spill-27

Local residents lined up outside the Charleston Fire Department Sunday morning, Jan. 12, 2014 to pick up bottled water in Charleston, W.Va. This is one of many locations handling distribution of bottled water as the ban on using tap water for drinking and washing continues following the chemical spill Thursday in the Elk River that has contaminated the public water supply in nine counties.
