ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - President Barack Obama wants to find out what happened in Flint, Michigan where a switch in water supplies led to a variety of health problems, the White House said on Wednesday.

“Clearly, the notification process is part of the problem here,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters traveling with Obama on Air Force One.

“The president is absolutely determined to figure out what went wrong, generally speaking,” Schultz said, noting the matter was under investigation.
