PADUCAH, KY – A Flood Warning was issued on February 24th for Paducah and Western Kentucky by the National Weather Service.
On Sunday, February 25, the City of Paducah declared a State of Emergency and began installing 14 out of the 23 floodgates along the Ohio River. The rest of the gates will be installed on March 2-3.
VIDEO: Early Sunday morning I was able to get some photos of the riverfront before the crews started working on the floodgates.
By midday Downtown was bustling as people gathered from all over to watch this enormous city-wide operation go like clockwork. Local 6 News was on site getting the facts while others held up cellphones to get personal footage of this historic event.
