Schools in Neillsville are closed today because they don't have any water.

City officials said yesterday that a major water line broke, and crews have not been able to find the source of the problem. The city's water tower -- which is near the high school -- was empty as of late yesterday afternoon. Officials asked residents to limit their water usage, and those who with medical issues are urged to fill sinks and jugs so they could have enough to last into today. The city has brought in outside help to try and find the spot where the water main broke. Neillsville is the county seat of Clark County in west central Wisconsin, with over 24-hundred residents.
