TULSA, OK -- After four days of low pressure, faucets are returning to full power in Midtown Tulsa.

The city says the problem started with a leak in a line near 47th and Utica. They ran into trouble while trying to repair it and crews were forced to shut down a nearby valve.

That caused the low pressure issues for hundreds of homeowners between Harvard and Lewis, 31st and 51st Street.

For some, like Jennifer Huntsman, it meant no water at all.

"We have to eat out, take showers at the gym. You can't do laundry, you can't. You really don't realize how much you need it until it's gone," said Jennifer Huntsman, a Tulsa resident.

The city says it was flooded with hundreds of calls from angry homeowners.
