Toledo Water Crisis: What's on Social Media

(Toledo News Now) -

Toledo's toxic water crisis is affecting nearly a half a million people. With so many people unable to access fresh water in their homes - emergency measures had to be taken immediately. The culprit? A toxin called microcystin that comes from algal blooms on Lake Erie. A sick lake means dirty, toxic water. And that's where we are now. 

You've seen Toledo come alive with worry, frustration, camaraderie, questions, advice, help, and an overwhelming sense of community -- all of it happening on social media. 

Here's a rolling profile of the social media coverage of this event from all over the region affected.
