Parts of Jackson/Byram without water

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Right now parts of south Jackson and the city of Byram are without water after a water main break earlier Saturday.

That's according to an employee with the Jackson Public Works Department.

Areas affected are houses in the 6900 to 7299 block of South Siwell Road, Churchill Place, Hollow Pine Street, Hollow Pine Road, and the Lake Dockery Subdivision.

From what they can tell, the water main broke early Saturday morning from the cold weather overnight.

Officials expect it to be out from now until 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

Several Byram restaurants had to close Saturday as a result.

If you live in that area and DO have water, please boil it for at least one minute before you drink or use it.
