Nervous residents snatch up water despite assurances
Instead of issuing the “do-not-drink-the-water” advisory that some jittery Toledoans expected Thursday, the city of Toledo issued a do-not-panic request. “The city of Toledo has received calls regarding rumors of a ‘Do Not Drink’ water advisory for today. There is no such advisory, and the water remains safe to drink,” said Kelly Hancock, a public relations representative with Hart Associates hired by the city to respond to the sudden upsurge in public concern about water quality.
