County, city have improved since ice storm struck in ‘09

Posted: Tuesday, January 21, 2014 7:00 am

Calloway County Emergency Management Director Bill Call said Monday that he believes the county and City of Murray have come a long way since an ice storm in 2009 that paralyzed western Kentucky.

During a Disaster Preparedness Forum at Murray State University, he said he believes an emergency operations center at the MSU police headquarters is better suited now than it was when it was pressed into service during the storm. He also said more key agencies in the community are equipped with generators that will allow them to function better now in the event of another such emergency. Call said the ‘09 storm left city residents without power for at least four days, while some county residents did not see their power restored until three-to-four weeks later.
