Water treatment plants in the two counties are operating at half capacity, draining reserves and threatening to create a water shortage for hundreds of thousands of residents. As a result, state officials are now ordering residents to use water only for hygiene and health purposes.

There are also more than 10 counties with boil water advisories. Middle TN is in such a state of crisis right now, with people still trapped in their homes, and shelters at capacity. I find it unsettling that there isn't much about it in the National News.
