Flint is currently dealing with a massive crisis with poisonous water coming out of faucets.
The water supply in Flint, Michigan is so contaminated with lead that it’s spewing out of faucets in unnatural yellow and brown colors. Blood tests show increased levels of poisonous lead in children who live there. It’s so bad the city’s 100,000 residents have to live off bottled water. That’s why people such as Flint resident Marseille Allen have launched GoFundMe campaigns to buy bottled water for people with limited resources. (CNN Money)
The situation has already forced the National Guard to get involved.
The National Guard sent dozens of additional members into Flint, Michigan, on Monday to help address the impoverished city’s water crisis, as Gov. Rick Snyder came under widening criticism — from residents and presidential candidates — for his handling of a massive exposure to lead. (NBC News)
