Thousands of Oklahomans have something in common, as of Wednesday night they have no running water or low water pressure.

Mary Bormann’s faucet stopped dripping Tuesday. She lives near Wilshire and 80th street.

“There are a lot of older people in the area and it would be good if they have some kind of idea what to expect,” she said.

When she tried to report her water was off, she couldn’t reach the emergency line.

She was able to fill out a report online. She said the most frustrating thing is not getting a straight answer.

“I haven’t gotten a thing about any kind of time frame. That’s the hard part you don’t know is it coming today, tomorrow, next week,” said Bormann.

She knows the city is trying its best but has one question. Isn’t there anyone who can help them with these claims?

“They’re dealing with a lot of issues in a lot of areas. I think there are ways that we could get help maybe from some other areas,” said Bormann.

Chris Browning, the director of Oklahoma City Utilities, announced Wednesday that they’ve received over 400 service calls and they are doing the best they can to help residents.
