Flooding Information and Kentucky Roads Update 5-12 3pm

From Walter Atherton, Daviess County Emergency Management.

If you are in Daviess County, KY., and have suffered any form of water damage from recent flooding contact EMA at 270 685 8448. The total amount of damage Daviess County has will determine if FEMA provides Individual Assistance (IA). Right now there is no FEMA assistance available to individuals in Daviess County.

For those that need assistance with clean up from flooding, the American Red Cross is coordinating those activities 270 683 2438.

And from Keith Todd, District Two Public Information Officer,  Kentucky Transportation Cabinet

Please note that US 41-Alternate is OPEN between the 11 and 12 mile marker in Hopkins County near the Hopkins-Webster County line.

We continue to urge motorists to use caution when driving on highways where floodwaters are along the edge of the roadway.  In some cases floodwaters can be 10 to 20 ft. deep along the edge of the roadway. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is warning motorists in the strongest possible terms that anytime you ignore a Road Closed sign and drive through floodwaters you are doing so at your own risk.  We will not reopen highways until they have been properly inspected and deemed safe for traffic to resume. 

Additionally, motorists who have been driving through floodwaters have reported having a number of mechanical issues with their vehicles.  Apparently today’s modern vehicles with electronic ignition systems don’t fare well when driven through water over extended periods.   Motorists are urged to have their vehicle checked by a mechanic to assure that brakes and other critical systems have not been damaged by floodwaters.
