- About 100,000 people living in North Fort Worth right now are being told to boil their water, on top of everything else. Eagle Mountain Water Plant has been without power, we're told, for more than two hours. They have experienced multiple outages, and that's all related to the blackouts that Steve was just talking about.

The boil water notice, which is in effect, is expected to be in effect through Wednesday this week. Basically meaning if you live in this area that we're showing you on the map, you technically should boil your water before you use it to cook or to drink. So, be careful.
