Flood is an overflow of a huge amount of water on the normally dry land. The EU flood directive defines flood as ‘a temporary covering by water of land not normally covered by water’. The past week was an extremely freezing and rainy week for the people in Austin, to the point where it flooded in multiple towns.
The city of Austin has been placed under a boil water notice and several of the campuses have been affected. To ensure student’s safety it is recommended to bring bottled waters instead of drinking from fountains, though its safe enough to shower, brush your teeth etc.

One way to get clean water is to boil contaminated water,
here are the steps on how to boil it!

  1. Get access to a pot
  2. Insert contaminated water in it
  3. Let it sit till bubbles rise to the top
  4. Let it sit of 5 min to boil
  5. Let it cool in room temperature 
  6. Serve and refrigerate!

Some of the affected campuses are:

    This was a great informational story that will help a lot of people stay safe. The only criticism I would give you maybe not defines “flooding” twice, the second time you did it was better than the first but other than that it was great.
