Two Phillips County communities without water

PHILLIPS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Residents in two Phillips County towns have been without water for nearly a week as officials there work to find a solution to the problem.

According to a report from CNN affiliate WREG, people in the communities of Lake View and Oneida have been without water since a water pump failed.

The Arkansas National Guard has been passing out bottled water to residents, while a nearby town has also brought water to residents.

Officials hope to have a solution to the problem by Thursday.
