West Virginia Gov. Earl Tomblin says the latest water tests are “encouraging,” but did not say when residents could begin to use tap water again following a major chemical spill.

Nearly 300,000 people have been without clean water for five days. The chemical is so potent that affected residents can only flush their toilets.

The state may soon step in and provide low- or no-interest loans to affected small businesses.

Peter Doocy reported on the story this morning. Watch the video above for the full report.
