Beaumont texas 118K citizens without water due to water pump failures.

KUDO's to Exxon Mobil and two other companies for stepping up on Friday to rigged a temporary pump from the Neches River to the city of Beaumont's water system, restoring water ranging from a drip to a flow to residents' faucets!

as is the prison there where the warden refused to evacuate

Remember, you are financially accountable for a bureaucratic drone's failure to perform their duties. Though, they will remind you that they did you a favor by not "actually" shutting off your water service...thus the $40 favor fee.
