Brazosport Cares food distribution

A boy watches from the backseat of his car as volunteers fill the trunk with food and water during a food distribution event at Brazosport Cares Food Pantry in Freeport on Friday. Thousands across the county are under a boil water advisory.

Most residents of Southern Brazoria County who receive water from a municipal system are being advised to boil their water before consumption.

The notice includes water for drinking, making ice, cooking and brushing teeth. Household uses such as washing dishes, doing laundry and bathing can be done without worry, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
