AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Paducah Mayor Gordon Melton says citizens of Paducah and Cottle County are under a water boil notice.

A water main that broke on Monday prompted the notice, which means that all citizens must boil their water prior to consuming it or cooking with it.

The water is set to be turned off Monday afternoon, but once service is restored, residents will still be required to boil the water until further notice.

We will continue to follow this situation and bring you the very latest information as soon as updates become available.
