    Officials have lifted a boil-water advisory for Temple residents

    Officials of a Central Texas city have lifted a boil-water advisory imposed after a loss of power to the city water treatment plant.

    Temple officials said Tuesday afternoon that the city water system had recovered from the loss of power from a lightning strike Saturday night.

    In a statement, they said test results showed no contaminants in the system's water and it is safe for human consumption. The test results also showed no need for flushing systems.

    Residents of the city of about 66,000 had been boiling water for drinking, cooking and making ice since Sunday morning.
