GREENUP COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- Long lines formed for the opening of water supply stations in Wurtland, Raceland and Greenup on Friday afternoon.
Everyone pitched in to help distribute the water to families in need -- from firefighters to city workers.
People we spoke with say they're frustrated because they don't have water for the basic necessities like bathing or even flushing toilets.
"Can't take a bath, can't wash your hair, can't flush the toilet," Greenup resident Kimberly Rothenstine said. "It's horrible."
Rothenstine has had to get water out of a creek.
"I’ve been busting my back every day," she said. "When push comes to shove, you have to take it and boil it and take a bath best you can."
The free water is a big relief for Wurtland resident Norma Lemaster, who has diabetes.
"I'm on a fixed income, and I can't afford to go buy water all the time," she said.
