Some bathrooms in Capitol building blocked off due to water issues

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Frigid weather is causing water pipes to burst underground in Mississippi’s largest city.

The entire city of Jackson was put under a precautionary boil-water notice Thursday because of pressure problems.

Portable toilets were put in place outside the state Capitol, where legislators are meeting. Some restrooms in the four-story building are blocked off because toilets won’t flush.
