All Zones Blue
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says there were some relieved people in his office Friday when the final zone impacted by the water emergency went blue.
Tomblin said he believes the water running through the West Virginia American Water system in the nine impacted counties is safe but realizes it may take a while for residents to fully trust it.
Tomblin said 15 million bottles of water have been distributed in the impacted counties. He said that will continue into next week.
State Homeland Security Director Jimmy Gianato said at some point the delivery of water from FEMA would stop.
Gov. Tomblin asked residents not to take more free water than they need.
Gianato says at the direction of the governor he is preparing a request for a major federal disaster declaration from President Barack Obama.
