area of Boston is under a Boil Water Order. A water main pipe burst at 10am on May first leaving 2 million residence without water. Many local drug stores like CVS have already reported selling out of water.
It has not been announced when the Boil Water Order will be lifted but aid in the crisis 2.5 million gallons of water have been ordered that will soon arrive in 63 trailers carrying 55,000 gallons and costing $8000 each-- a total cost of $509,100. This water will be given out to high risk populations like the elderly.
It also has been reported that stores are beginning to raise prices on bottled water. Unstoppable market system or result of corrupt and evil store owners--discuss.
Anyway, Boston has requested aid from the Federal Government. I am excited to see Boston's resilience in action, although I hope it doesn't last too long :)
I now return to exile
