Brown Water Runs From Tap in Jackson, Mississippi, Amid Boil-Water Notice

Dark-brown water poured from a sink faucet in Jackson, Mississippi, as a boil-water notice remained in place for the area on Friday, September 9.

This footage was captured by Molly Minta, who said she recorded it at her home in the Belhaven neighborhood of Jackson on Friday afternoon.

“My landlord’s office manager said several properties in this area are affected,” Minta told Storyful.

On Thursday, the Mississippi National Guard continued to supply Jackson residents with bottled and non-potable water.

On Friday, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves said progress was being made on the city’s water crisis, but the boil-water notice would not be lifted at the weekend. Credit: Molly Minta/Mississippi Today via Storyful
