Saying they still don't trust that their tap water is safe, some West Virginia residents are using the freshly fallen snow to drink, bathe in, cook with, and give to their dogs.
There's growing outrage in West Virginia as more and more people report getting sick from a chemical spill that contaminated the tap water for hundreds of thousands of people.
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.
Hundreds of thousands of West Virginia residents are without tap water this morning after a toxic chemical spilled into the Elk River. Federal officials declared a disaster in nine counties, one day after Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin issued a state of emergency.
