New Orleans: Come for the food, but don't drink the water. (Not right now, anyway.)
New Orleans' East Bank was under a boil order Sunday after a small fire at the parish's Sewerage and Water Board Power Plant caused a power loss that resulted in low water pressure, officials said.
No one was reported hurt in the fire.
The contamination fears brought grumbles from residents (see below) about the city's long-maligned infrastructure, which saw similar contamination fears in October after a mechanical failure at a power plant resulted in a loss of water pressure.
The boil order was expected to last at least 24 hours as officials tested the water to determine whether it had been contaminated. Water pressure was reported to be back to normal.
