Buford pledged to get state help when necessary and needed.
Harmon hit many of the same notes as Buford, pledging to get state funds when possible.
Coomer, in California on business until Thursday, joined the EOC at the noon Friday meeting and liked what he saw.
"I can't say that I'm glad to be home," Coomer joked. "I appreciate Jamey (Gay)'s organization as Mayor Pro Tem. He's done a great job filling in for me."
Coomer underlined this was a time for patience, communication and cooperation.
As of the EOC's 8 a.m. meeting today, the latest updates regarding Danville and Boyle County include:
Despite Friday night setbacks in the form of a main line leak and a water break at St. Mildred's Court, City Engineer Earl Coffey said tanks are now 2/3 full. The water plant is running on permanent power, while the intake pump is still using a generator. Clearing industries to use the city water supply is tenuous. The boil water advisory remains in effect until further notice, and water conservation from residents still is requested.
City roads remain relatively clear and improving. On the county side, Ky. 52 is now open, said Boyle County Engineer Duane Campbell, adding improvement on the conditions of outlying roads as well.
Kentucky Utilities spokesperson Cliff Feltham reports increased progress in the area. As of 8 p.m. Friday, 6,550 Danville KU customers remained without power. City Commissioner Jamey Gay warned residents of potential set-backs during the power restoration process. Residents should not be discouraged if a previously powered area once again loses power.
Updates from KU and Intercounty-Energy are expected later Saturday morning.
Roger Trent, Director of the Boyle County Health Department, said the main shelter at Boyle County High School was going extremely well and housed 135 residents as of Saturday morning. Additional shelters are located at First Baptist Church on U.S. 127 and Alum Springs First Church of God.
With the previously reported city debris clean up getting underway today, 20 foresters from the Kentucky Division of Forestry will assist crews in clearing roadways and items placed within 10 feet of streets.
