Schools in Blaine are closed Monday because of a "water supply issue."
The City of Blaine experienced a drop in water pressure around 5 p.m. Sunday, which prompted a flurry of complaints on social media, a statement on the city's website says. Which has prompted officials to recommend people boil the water they plan to drink out of precaution until further notice.
Blaine officials are investigating what led to the drop in water pressure, with the initial investigation pointing to "an internal power failure" that disrupted the utility communication system. The power supply has since been replaced.

The city isn't sure if the current water issue has anything to do with the city losing water last month. That incident also led schools to close.
