Omaha Tribe goes two weeks under boil water order
A city on the Omaha Reservation in Nebraska is going on two weeks under a boil water order and even went without power for five days.

The water system in Macy has long been a source of problems. The Environmental Protection Agency issued a similar boil water order last year.

"We had this a year ago, that this happened to us," tribal member Stefanie Parker told KCAU-TV.

The boil water order was issued on January 15 -- the same day a winter storm knocked out the power. It took five days for power to be restored.
