Madisonville Police Reports on Monday Flood

flood rescueMADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/26/13) – With a complete after-action review of the severe weather event that occurred within the city limits of Madisonville on Monday, the Madisonville Police Department (MPD) has issued the following law enforcement summary of activity to keep local citizens informed.
 
The event started with the torrential rain and the first of over 300 weather-related calls to MPD at approximately 10:00 AM. Within moments of these incoming calls, law enforcement officials became very aware of the potential seriousness of the developing issues.
 
It was during this time that various emergency plans were activated in an attempt to save both life and property. The plans included evacuation of flooded areas, rerouting traffic and notification to area residents. As these plans went underway, MPD found a valuable resource in the federal surplus vehicle acquired through the diligent coordination with the Federal Government Property System. These vehicles were used in the rescue of 11 stranded citizens and numerous transports of supplies and personnel in flooded areas.
 
MPD officials stated, “With these thoughts in mind, we are thankful for no reported loss of life as a result of this dangerous event. However, we take this time to remind the citizenry of the importance of having personal and family emergency plans practiced and in place, as we understand that severe weather can and will be present in our future.
