Close to two hundred thousand residents in Jackson, Mississippi have 'indefinitely' lost access to running water after excessive rainfall and flooding. Rising floodwaters over the weekend breached the city's main water treatment facility, bringing it to the brink of collapse. A state of emergency has been declared, and schools, restaurants and businesses have temporarily closed.
