Thursday, Sept. 15, is the deadline for most taxpayers who must make third quarter estimated tax payments. Some Mississippi filer, however, get until next February.

But the reason for the extension is not one they, or anyone, would want.

Heavy rains on in late August led to flooding of the Pearl River, which overwhelmed a municipal water pump in Jackson, the Magnolia State capital. Once the pump failed, residents were left without running water.

Taps are working again, but when it resumed, the water wasn’t potable. Or ready for any other normal use as the social media post below shows.
