As of noon Wednesday, some small bits of good news were beginning to filter out of storm-stricken Danville.
The snow has ended, and portions of the city are seeing power restored. Portions of Main Street, The Centre College campus and Boyle County High School now have power, and crews are working on the remaining areas. Danville Police Chief Jay Newell said road conditions are better, but says people should stay in their homes and off the streets unless it is absolutely necessary to get out.
City Manager Paul Stansbury said he expects the water to be back at full flow in Danville by approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday. However, he is advising local industries to curtail their second and third shifts for Wednesday.
The Bunny Davis Health Club is the only known shelter open in Danville. The phone number there is (859) 238-1233, and transportation to the shelter is available by calling that number. Currently there is room for more people, but Boyle County Director of Health Roger Trent said there is a need for bedding and other supplies, particularly baby needs, at the shelter. Call Trent at 859-583-0455 if you are able to donate. There is a nurse practitioner on duty at the shelter.
