JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Jackson city officials say residents in some South Jackson neighborhoods should expect low to no water pressure going into Saturday evening as a result of a broken fire hydrant on Rankin Street.

Neighborhoods impacted include those near Raymond Road, Forest Hill Road, and McCluer Road, according to a city news release.

City work crews were on the scene Saturday and had hoped to repair the hydrant Saturday afternoon. The hydrant is tied to a 16-inch water main that helps feed water to residences.

Residents in the Forest Hill and McCluer Road areas were some of the hardest-hit earlier this year when winter storms caused equipment failure at the O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant.
