VICKSBURG, Miss. (WJTV) — A boil water advisory has been issued for the entire City of Vicksburg.

It’s for customers who receive their drinking water from their water supply in Warren County.

Some in the area may be experiencing little or no water pressure because of the problems at the water treatment plant.  Health officials said the advisory is due to a system-wide pressure loss from Monday night’s storm. The boil water notice affects 27, 852 customers.
