Several homes in Assumption Parish are without water
Assumption Parish Water Company officials say a higher demand for water over the weekend was the reason for outages.
Several areas in the parish have been with little to no water since Friday.
Officials say a big part of the problem is how folks prepared for the cold weather.
They say too many faucets were left running overnight, and that led to a drop in water pressure.
Many are relying on well water for basic needs.
