CROSS LANES, W.Va. — A Kanawha County bulk water distribution point had to be closed Thursday afternoon after a hole developed under a large water tanker.
The front of the tanker dug a hole in the pavement of the parking lot at the former Big Sandy Superstore parking lot in Cross Lanes. A large tow truck was brought to the scene to pull the front of the tanker out of the hole.
Kanawha County has bulk water distribution points set up for residents who still aren’t using their tap water following the Jan. 9 chemical leak and resulting water emergency.
The distribution site will reopen Friday.
