Water being sent to Ohio city from across state

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The mayor of Ohio's fourth-largest city says water will be flowing into the Toledo area from all corners of the state to help the 400,000 people who are being warned not to drink the city's water. Toledo's mayor says water is coming from Akron, Cincinnati and even a prison near Columbus. City officials issued the warning Saturday after tests revealed the presence of a toxin possibly from algae on Lake Erie. Gov. John Kasich has declared a state of emergency in northwest Ohio that is allowing state agencies and the Ohio National Guard to begin delivering water. Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins says more tests are being run to determine if the water is safe. He hopes to have those results later Saturday.
