    Anyone else in Des Moines without water this morning? Wife took a shower around 5am and at 5:30 we had barely a trickle of water coming out of the facet. Been on hold for at least 15 minutes with Des Moines Water Works and getting a "high call volume" message so I wonder if it's a big problem somewhere. Live in the Beaverdale area so wondering if any of you nearby are having the same problem?

    Must be regional. I live south of Grand, and I have full water pressure.

    I'm just north of Douglas near Lower Beaver Ave. Haven't seen a light on near a neighbor else I'd ask one of them too.

    Must be a big outage somewhere, after 30 minutes of waiting got booted and now both numbers to DMWW are busy.

    I live 3 blocks from the Beaver/Urbandale intersection and have water.
