CLINTON - Customers of Water District 7 in East Feliciana Parish are being told to boil their water at least through Tuesday before drinking it or using it to prepare food.

The district's maintenance supervisor, James Jenkins, told The Advocate the order was issued after lightning struck a water main on the rural system about 3 a.m. Thursday as a thunderstorm passed through the area, causing some contamination in the water lines.

The system serves customers north and northeast of Clinton, excluding the town of Clinton.
