Here's how Thursday and this morning went down:
At noon Thursday, Mayor Pro Tem Jamey Gay said the pace was quickening when it came to restoration of power. Sherri Gilliam with Inter-County Energy said an estimated 2,500-3,000 customers in Boyle County were still without power. Crews continue to work on the problem.
Areas in Parksville and Junction City have been restored.
Gay said KU will bring units in from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia to aid in relief. He said KU had 9,200 customers in Boyle without power.
Four hours later, Gay said Charleston Healthcare was online, but it appeared Danville Centre for Health and Rehabilitation on Third Street could take as long as three weeks to restore.
KU addressed several priority areas, including powering Farmer's National Bank and area hotels. The courthouse was also a priority, and County Judge-Executive Harold McKinney announced it would be operational by today, regardless.
Additionally, residents continued to be cautioned on using safety when dealing with downed power lines and connections to their homes.
Stansbury asked residents to check the connections from the lines to their residences in case of irregularities and damage. If anything looks damaged, residents are advised to have it checked by an independent electrician. KU will not deal with damages.
Residents also were told not to hook up generators to house lines due to the considerable fire hazard.
At 8 p.m., Gay said there was not a huge change in electric service, aside from a few locations in Danville and Boyle County reporting a restoration of power. That included several areas downtown, much of Fourth Street, and portions of Perryville.
Coming into the EOC this morning, workers were busy with the green magic marker, coloring in several additional areas with restored electricity. By 8 a.m. today, the colored areas included parts of Junction City, Perryville, and much more of downtown Danville.
Gay said more in-depth reports from both KU and Inter-County Energy were expected at noon.
At noon, Assistant City Engineer Josh Morgan reported both pumps were up and running at both the intake and water treatment plant. Wholesale customers such as Garrard, Parksville and Hustonville were expected to be back on supply soon. Residents still are being asked to conserve water and use only when necessary. If compliance occurs, City Manager Paul Stansbury said full, normal service would return by 7 a.m. today.
At 4 p.m., Morgan said tanks were 50 percent and holding steady. People are urged, however, to continue conserving.
A boil-water advisory remains in effect until further notice.
Thursday night at 8 p.m., City Manager Paul Stansbury said the water system was getting over the initial surge from residential users, but conservation was still a must.
This morning, Stansbury said water was replenishing itself nicely, but the system was not restored entirely.
"We'll be on a boil water advisory for the foreseeable future," Stansbury noted.
At noon, both the William E. Bunny Davis Recreational Complex and Centenary United Methodist Church Christian Life Center were up and running. Medical service people are still needed, however, at both locations.
At 4 p.m., Boyle County Health Department Director Roger Trent said the church was approaching capacity and people were encouraged to stay home if possible.
There is a desperate need for able volunteers at both shelter locations. Medical workers also still are needed.
At 8 p.m. Alum Springs Baptist Church was opened as an overnight shelter. Additionally, Trent reported both the complex and church were reaching critical levels. A meeting between agencies was held at 9 p.m. regarding future shelter, but no announcement was made.
Trent noted this morning plans were under way to open an additional shelter. An announcement is expected at the noon meeting. As of 8 a.m., the complex and church were housing approximately 250 residents.
The health department director said the majority of those using the shelter were from public housing.
"The numbers are going to keep going up," said Trent.
Gay said he would consult KU and Inter-County about making public housing a priority for restoration of power.
Police Chief Jay Newell said there had been no reports of thefts at the shelters.
Newell said this morning all city roads were looking great, while County Engineer Duane Campbell announced 80 percent of county roads were clear. Problem areas include the county's knobs.
Gay said at the meeting this morning officials were in the process of obtaining information about reimbursement and aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Announcements are expected at noon.
With much of the state -- and the nation -- having its collective eye fixed on Danville and Boyle County, Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo visited the area Thursday, offering wishes of good hope and speedy recovery. Mongiardo visited area shelters and met with local leaders in the EOC.
State Sen. Tom Buford was expected in the area today.
