TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (WUSA9) -- Prince George's County residents are thrilled they won't have to go into survivor-mode.

They've gone from the fear of having no water to wondering what to do with all the water they have stockpiled.

People are also asking "what are we going to do about the lost wages?" A lot of day workers were sent home, and that's money they cannot make up. 

A lot of the people who showed up to buy water had not heard that the crisis had been averted until they heard from WUSA 9. 

Some people mentioned taking the water to a local shelter. 

Listening to the residents in southern Prince George's County, you've got your answers. You can store that water, donate to charities or shelters or share with neighbors.
