The boil water order was issued after lightning struck one of the county’s water treatment plants on Tuesday night.
In a release from the county, the lightning strike impacted the capabilities of the 2A pumping station in Pompano Beach, which resulted in very little to low water pressure in all of Lighthouse Point, northern portions of Pompano Beach, and parts of Deerfield Beach.
