LORAIN, Ohio -- A 48-hour boil alert was issued in Lorain Wednesday after a power failure at a pump house.
The boil alert is for areas of the city south of Tower Boulevard, west of Oberlin Avenue and East of Leavitt Road.
Residents should bring their tap water to a full boil for at least one minute before drinking. This will kill any potential bacteria that may be in the water.
