A sign warns residents that the water distribution center at the Gestamp in South Charleston, W.Va. is temporarily out of water, as was the case at a dozen other locations late Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. The chemical 4-methylcyclohexane methanol leaked Thursday from a 48,000-gallon tank at Freedom Industries, a chemical storage facility about a mile upriver in Charleston, W.Va. The White House has issued a federal disaster declaration in West Virginia, where the spill may have contaminated tap water. Officials told at least 300,000 people not to bathe, brush their teeth or wash their clothes. (AP Photo/Tyler Evert)
