Thousands of residents had to face another day without water in Vicksburg and they are not happy about it. Many spent the day scrambling to stock up on what they can, until water is flowing again.

At Pemberton Mall in the City of Vicksburg, county and city officials have setup a distribution site to handout free bottled water to those in need. All those in line said that this water outage is more like a water crisis.

“It is very frustrating to me and my kids and my family,” said one Vicksburg resident.

“It is hard for me and then I am pregnant,” said another resident.

Folks waiting in line to load up with water didn't hold back their disappointment about the water problems in Vicksburg. They say it is still hard to believe they will have to survive without tap water for days.

“No water and not being able to take a bath is hard, 'cause I like to take a bath,” said another resident.

Debra Williams couldn't agree more. She is filling up buckets with water in the county area to survive until the water is turned on.

“You are going to have to use buckets or bottled water to clean yourself up or you will be stinky,” said Williams.

To make matters worse, her job is temporarily shut down, as well as other businesses because they had no water to operate.

“I feel bad because I am losing money because I cannot work,” said Williams.

“I work at the casino and I couldn't work there because they didn't have water," said a frustrated resident. "I had to take off.”

These residents hope city crews will work fast because they are losing patience.

“I am losing money because I can't work. Jobs are shut down because of the water. It is irritating and miserable,” said Williams.
