Kroger assists Toledo during water scare

Kroger shipped 1.25 million bottles of water to its Toledo, Ohio, stores over the weekend during a do-not-drink-water advisory.

The water notice was announced Aug. 2 after algae toxins were detected in Lake Erie. It has since been lifted.

"We are diverting our resources in order to continuously ship water to our affected stores throughout the weekend,” Kroger wrote in a Facebook post.
