QUEEN CITY, TX (KSLA) -

Water pressure has been restored in Queen City after a car plowed into a fire hydrant on Highway 59 early Wednesday morning.

The resulting damage required city crews to open other fire hydrants to relieve the pressure, which left water customers with little more than a trickle for a few hours.

Mayor Harold Martin says the repairs have since been made and the water pressure has been restored, but the problem forced the cancellation of classes for local schools.

Superintendent, Dr. Angela Gutsch said there was not enough water pressure to cook, use water fountains or use the bathrooms.

A boil advisory has not been issued. School officials say classes are expected to resume Thursday, and parents will be notified of any further changes in the schedule.
