Continuing blackouts in Venezuela have citizens scrambling for clean water.
Reports Saturday detail the situation in Maracaibo, where rolling outages in Venezuela’s second largest city have forced people to seek water sources wherever they can.
After a nationwide blackout in March, the government started hiring tanker trucks to deliver water to neighborhoods, but community leaders say this isn’t reliable.
While many get their water from these trucks, some still don’t trust the quality of the water for every use. Reports said many residents only have about four hours of electricity per day.
The ongoing power crisis highlights the political struggle in the country, as self-declared Interim President Juan Guaido is slated to visit with supporters in Maracaibo Saturday.
