Flint Residents Gather To Form A Plan On The Water Crisis

Hundreds of Flint residents gathered at a church to form a plan of action on the Flint water crisis.

Earlier this week Governor Rick Snyder issued a state of emergency for the city in Genesee County.

Flint residents say enough is enough they want changes done now.

The issues started when Flint switched its drinking water from the Detroit system to the Flint River in April 2014 to save money.

Lead has since been found in children’s blood levels.

Attorney Bill Goodman is leading several people in a class action lawsuit against the state.

He says seeing such a large crowd is overwhelming.

"We’re fighting for compensation for victims of the poisoned water. Physical injuries. Property damage. Emotional damage, and future damage especially for the children."

 Michigan State Troopers and state employees are going door-to-door in Flint handing out bottled water, water testing kids and other resources to families affected by the water crisis.
