Anger as Houston Boil Water Notice Announced Late at Night on Social Media

Residents of Houston have been placed under a boil water notice, leaving many complaining about learning of the issue from Twitter. It means consumers must boil their tap water before they drink it, use it to brush their teeth, and prepare food. A power outage at the East Water Purification Plant in Houston on November 27 at 10:30am led the water pressure to drop below the city's required minimum levels for safety. Six hours after the outage, the city issued notice to the 2.2 million residents.
