Council declared a water state of emergency this afternoon.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke]


Carvin's Cove is now 21 point two feet below the spillwell. Restrictions on water usage right now are voluntary. But there will be mandatory restrictions which means water usage will be restricted between 10 am and 7 pm. Council today also set aside one million dollars to purchase water from Salem and Roanoke County once the cove falls between 26 feet. The meeting is still under way at this hour.
It culminated in members from both parties blasting Mayor Ralph Smith and the General Assembly for killing a bill that would have amended the city charter and increased the city's admission taxes. We'll have more on both stories coming up on news 7 at 6.

"Jessika's Cause" was back in the General Assembly spotlight today, as lawmakers considered a bill that would prohibit schools from using 15- passenger vans to transport students.
The measure made it out of committee, but not without significant ammendments.

(SOT TRAVERS: "The best way to actually fight dry skin is to try to

put water back into it.")

(MATTHEWS STANDUP: "Dr. Travers says our best defense against dry skin is to drink plenty of water to help hydrate the skin from the inside out.")

THEN FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS.
LIMIT YOUR SHOWER TIME.
USE LUKEWARM WATER.
AVOID BODY WASH AND DEODORANT SOAPS.. WHICH CAN BE MORE DRYING.
AND IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO LATHER UP EVERYWHERE.

(SOT TRAVERS: "That's appropirate if you're an athlete or like my kids

rolling in the mud. But for normal people all you need to do is use soap in areas such as your face, underneath your arms and your groin and your feet.")

PAT YOURSELF DRY.. THEN APPLY A MOISTURIZER TO THE SKIN WHILE IT'S STILL WET.
THE BEST PROTECTION: PETROLEUM JELLY.

little bit of that will work well as a lubricant.")))
