Good evening, I'm Eric Earnhart.
Water problems in the City of Blacksburg should be over sometime tomorrow morning.
Earlier this evening, officials asked residents to conserve water. Last night some pumps were hit by lightning, allowing water storage tanks in the north part of town to run dry.
Tonight police say city crews have repaired the pumps and are refilling the tanks. Residents are still asked to use water sparingly until the tanks are full.
Things should be back to normal in the morning.
