    Major water issues have been reported in Mississippi. Crews are working to restore water services in the southern part of Oxford.

    The city of Oxford is currently under a boil-water notice. But, the major took to Twitter to say the town did not have any water. 

    "Quick Update: We have located one water main break and are searching as fast as we can for the second break. The tanks have depleted which is why you have no water. Once the break is located and fixed, it will take a few hours for supply to replenish," Robyn Tannehill, Mayor said.
