Public Health Issues Guidelines Related to Severe Flooding
Flooding can create health, safety concerns

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 25, 2019) - The Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), reminds Kentuckians to follow safety guidelines following severe flooding and water run-off events from recent rainfall across the state.

“We urge Kentuckians to use caution in flooded areas, and once floodwaters recede and the clean-up begins, to keep yourself and your family safe,” said Dr. Jeff Howard, DPH Commissioner. “Taking the time to follow safety guidelines related to food safety, mold removal and other issues helps prevent unnecessary injury and illness.”

The following precautions are recommended by DPH:

Flood Waters

During flood cleanup, the risk of incurring wounds may be increased. For this reason, cleanup workers should be sure that they are up-to-date with tetanus vaccination, ideally before starting cleanup activities. Adults need a tetanus booster shot every 10 years. Td or Tdap can be used; getting the Tdap instead of Td for one tetanus booster during adulthood is recommended to maintain protection against pertussis. Being up-to-date for tetanus vaccine can greatly simplify the treatment for any wound that might occur. Contact your regular health care provider or your local health department if you believe you may need a tetanus shot.
Flood-related drowning is also a danger, and often occurs when people become trapped by rising flood waters or when they voluntarily enter flooded areas. Never enter flood waters unless you are escaping immediate danger. Do not attempt to drive a vehicle through flood waters. Carefully monitor the weather conditions and water levels to avoid becoming surrounded by water.
Floods can damage utilities, leading to downed power lines and a risk of electrocution. Stay clear of damaged power lines. Natural gas and propane systems can produce dangerous gas leaks. If you smell gas, open doors and windows and evacuate the area.
Home Clean-up and Mold Removal

Use caution during clean-up activities. Wear proper safety equipment, such as work gloves, boots, helmets, eye and ear protection, and chainsaw chaps when operating power tools or machinery. Ensure all electrical tools are properly grounded and use ground fault interrupters (GFI) if available. Never use electrically powered tools in or near standing water.
Homeowners whose homes sustained water damage are urged to follow recommendations to limit mold growth. Mold fungi can be found indoors and outside and can accumulate in homes affected by flood/water damage. Mold grows best in warm, damp and humid conditions.
Signs of mold include discolored walls possibly showing water damage, or green or black spots apparent on walls. Mold also has a musty, earthy smell or a foul stench. Allergy sufferers tend to be most affected by mold exposure.
If mold is growing in your home, you will need to clean up the mold and fix the moisture problem. Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial products, soap and water, or a bleach solution of no more than 1 cup of bleach in 1 gallon of water. Severe mold cases may require an expert to clean up.
DPH recommends that doors and windows be open while cleaning affected areas. Use protective glasses or goggles, rubber boots and waterproof gloves and wash clothing afterwards. If there is heavy mold growth, use a respirator or suitable mask to prevent breathing the mold. Remove all wet items that have been wet for more than 48 hours and cannot be cleaned and dried.
Food Safety

DPH also cautions people to think about food safety if they have been affected by power outages. This includes keeping freezers closed to maintain the proper temperature for frozen foods. A freezer will hold its appropriate temperature for approximately 48 hours when full and for 24 hours when half full. If you have power outages, it is best to keep freezers closed to help keep frozen food from going bad.
Refrigerated foods should be safe as long as power is out for no more than four hours. Throw away any perishable food in your refrigerator, such as meat, poultry, lunchmeats, fish, dairy products, eggs and any prepared or cooked foods that have been above 40 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is home to most of the state's human services and healthcare programs, including the Department for Medicaid Services, the Department for Community Based Services the Department for Public Health, the Department for Aging and Independent Living and the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities. CHFS is one of the largest agencies in state government, with nearly 8,000 full- and part-time employees located across the Commonwealth focused on improving the lives and health of Kentuckians.

Cumberland County Kentucky Emergency Management

To the Citizens of Burkesville and Cumberland County.

Due to the amount of rainfall, and the water being released from Wolf Creek Dam, we are experiencing flooding in many areas of the county. The rain may have stopped, but the river is expected to rise to historic levels. And this may not happen until tonight, tomorrow, or the next day.

Roads and bridges either closed or that will possibly be closed are as follows;

Scott’s Ferry Road

Garmon’s Ferry Road

Goose Creek Road

Lawson’s Bottom Road which is Hwy 912

704 at the 4 mile marker from 61N

Cumberland Drive between the Housing Authority and Cliff Street

Gary Morgan Road at 61N

Jackson Hollow Road

Goose Creek Bridge is closed

Otter Creek Bridge is closed but you can gain access by the hill to Hwy 449

Garmon’s Ferry Bridge is closed

State Bridge in Lawson’s Bottom is closed

Crocus Creek Bridge at Bakerton will be closed later

As will the bridge on Leslie. Due to flooding in the Arat community, when this bridge closes there will be no access to areas of Leslie below the bridge.

Other areas that are affected, or possibly will be, are basically anywhere that you have seen backwater from the Cumberland River.

If you live in one of these areas areas, or another that you have concern about, we ask that you SERIOUSLY CONSIDER going to a friend or family members home in a safe area if possible. We will be opening at least one Receiving Center for those people that have no other choice of where to go. But we would like to stress that if you can stay with someone until the threat has subsided, please do so, so that we may accommodate those with serious need and nowhere else to go first.

To make sure we know where everyone is we will need to document your information at the receiving centers. So, an ID will be required to stay. For our record keeping and your safety.

PLEASE be aware of your surroundings and give yourself time to leave your home safely if you think the water might get to your home.

We need to make it clear that this water will NOT recede quickly. The water may not go down for up to a week. With the dam releasing 60,000 cubic feet per second today, we have no knowledge of what that will look like. The river could rise a couple more feet or 10 or 15 feet, we just don’t know.

If you have an emergency please call 911.

We have given you all the information we have at this point. But if you need to talk to someone you can call Emergency Management Director Greg Cary at 270-406-2923, or County Judge Executive John Phelps at 270-459-0241, or Burkesille Mayor Billy Guffey at 270-406-0189.

Thank you all and please use your heads and stay safe.

JAMESTOWN, Ky. (Feb. 23, 2019) – Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announce that releases at Wolf Creek Dam are increasing to 45,000 cubic feet per second this afternoon, and releases are expected to increase to 60,000 cfs by noon Sunday, Feb. 24.

Wolf Creek Dam Release Update

The following information is provided by LRN Water Management

LRN Water Management have seen rainfall totals above which were forecasted yesterday and the NWS is forecasting continued rainfall for up to the next 24 hours. This is causing pool forecasts at Wolf Creek to rise higher than what we were forecasting yesterday. Based upon this information, we are making the decision to expedite our release schedule that we previously described. Our current plan is to increase discharges at noon today (23 February) to 45K cfs and our plan moving forward is to increase releases to 60K cfs tomorrow (24 February) at noon. For awareness, the highest historical discharge from Wolf Creek is 40K cfs and channel capacity downstream is 60K cfs.

To be clear, this is our current plan. As conditions change and we gain additional clarity on what the rainfall totals will be in the Wolf Creek basin, we will adjust our operations as needed. At this time higher releases above the 60K cfs cannot be ruled out.

Cumberland County Kentucky Emergency Management

The widespread morning rain is not as heavy as previously expected, but moderate to occasionally heavy rain across south-central Kentucky could still cause some nuisance flooding in low-lying areas.

Then our attention turns to strong to severe storms this evening. There is still a risk for locally damaging winds and brief spin-up tornadoes, as well as additional flooding. The wind and tornado threats are still limited by whether or not instability is realized, but we won't need much.

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources

Input requested from our friends at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources


In response to substantial and growing interest in crossbow hunting, the Department is proposing for the 2019-20 hunting seasons to:
1) Open crossbow deer season on the third Saturday in September, then close on the third Monday in January (same closing date as archery).
2) Allow youths 15 and younger to use crossbows the entire deer season (fully concurrent with archery season), like seniors age 65+ can already.
