Beaumont, Texas, loses water supply due to Harvey

Baptist Beaumont Hospital spokeswoman Mary Poole said the hospital's main pumping station lost service, meaning the acute care center no longer has access to potable water. The secondary source, at Loeb Wells in Hardin County, Texas, only provided about 30 percent.

The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency said authorities were "tracking" the collapsed water system in Beaumont and working to distribute meals and bottles of water across the flood zone. The city of almost 120,000 residents will be without water until after floodwaters recede and officials can analyze the extent of the damage that has left many standing in long lines waiting to buy bottled water.
