West Virginia Water Crisis Could Last For Days

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (January 12, 2014) A water crisis in West Virginia was entering its fourth day Sunday, and many fear it could be days more before hundreds of thousands of residents can use tap water for anything besides flushing the toilet.

As state officials work on getting clean water running again after a chemical spill Thursday that tainted the water supply, they're also trying to find alternative water sources to allow restaurants and other businesses to reopen.

Virtually every restaurant is closed, unable to use water to prepare food, wash dishes or clean employees' hands.

Several flights into and out of Charleston's Yeager Airport were canceled Sunday because of the water shortage.
