(DAVIESS COUNTY, Mo.) Organizations are stepping in to help those impacted by the water line issue that has left nearly 2,000 people without water.

Convoy of Hope donated 19 pallets of bottled water on Friday and the Cameron Walmart store donated 18 pallets on Saturday.

The bottled water will go towards helping the people in DeKalb and Daviess county that have been without water for several days.

The issue began on Wednesday when water stopped flowing through water lines south of the Pattonsburg City Water Plant. The Missouri Rural Water Association and other organizations have been working on solving the issue since it began.

Water distribution sites have been set up in three communities. In Altamont at the KAW Fire Station #3, in Weatherby at the Community Center, and in Winston at the KAW Fire Station #4.

American Red Cross and local volunteers are on scene assisting in water distribution.

It is still unknown when water may be restored.
