Luke 21:7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will all this happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to take place?” Luke 21:11 "There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things (that which strikes terror), and great miraculous signs in the heavens."
West Virginia officials announced late Monday they were going to start lifting the water ban for communities impacted by a massive chemical spill.
Governor Earl Ray Tomblin said that a “rolling lift” of the ban would take place to avoid having the water system overtaxed by everyone returning to the system at one time. A mass return would also cause more water quality problems.
Up to 10,000 residents were allowed to use the water system Monday with an additional 25,000 on Tuesday. Officials with West Virginia American Water said it could be a few more days before all customers could return to the system.
Customers were warned that while the water may continue to have an odd odor, it is safe for use in bathing, cooking and cleaning.
Health officials say only 14 people have been admitted to hospitals because of exposure to the tainted water and none are in serious condition. In addition, the river has not seen a fish kill or animal deaths from the contamination.
