Some local stores running low on bottled water

Some local stores in the metro-east are quickly running out of water.
As of Wednesday afternoon, store supplies were low at Walmart locations in Belleville and O’Fallon.
Supplies at local grocery chains were also moving quickly.
Paul Simon, spokesman for Schnucks, said the company puts special plans in place when a boil order is issued.
He said the grocery chain planned to replenish supplies in the metro-east.

Meanwhile, the Belleville Humane Society issued a call for water: they’re running out.
A boil order has been issued for St. Clair County.
We’re in need of some gallons of water for the duration.
If you have any and can stop by to drop them off, we’d appreciate it!
