Walmart donates water to East Palestine

Posted: Updated:

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio - The Columbiana County Emergency Management Agency has been coordinating efforts to help residents in East Palestine. E-M-A Director Luke Newbold tells us the Salem Walmart has donated 3 pallets of water to East Palestine residents. Each family that needs water can pick up free drinking water at the fire station on East Clark Street. 

Columbiana Commissioner Mike Halleck also stopped by to find out if there were any needs commissioners could help meet. Halleck told WFMJ he didn't believe East Palestine was at a state of emergency at this point, but that if that happened the county could help make resources available on an as needed basis.
 
Columbiana's EMA Director, Luke Newbold, tells 21 News getting water to East Liverpool has been difficult as so much water is being shipped to West Virginia to help residents who are also without water. Walmart has responded to East Palestine's need for help by tracking down water at a store in Pennsylvania, and will be trucking an additional 1-thousand cases of water to East Palestine. The water is expected to arrive early Sunday morning.
