Houston is now under a boil water notice.
My hotel falls under the notice, so it looks like I won’t be drinking any of the tap water today! Fortunately, I have a small electric kettle that I can use to boil water for tea, coffee, etc. But, I’ll probably play it safe and buy some bottled water.
What happened? There was a large water main break.
It caused some minor flooding in the area, but more importantly, the damage has contaminated the drinking water in the area. Most of the area schools are shut down and many businesses in the area too.
