Cold air funnels possible today. If you see elevated funnel clouds, be sure and take photos to send our way. These cold air funnels typically stay elevated, however on the rare occurrence that they touch down, they only cause minor damage. Below is the advisory message published from the National Weather Service.

There have been reports of cold air funnels today. These cold air funnels are developing underneath a few showers that are moving across the area. Underneath these showers...spinning columns of air that look like tornadoes may continue to develop. These funnels usually are very brief and rarely touch the ground. If these funnels do touch down...they most likely will not cause damage to life or property.

Cold air funnels are due to very cool air aloft...warm moist air near the ground...and are usually in association with a strong area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Due to
little or no wind shear...they are usually weak and very brief.

Last week Bell City Fire and Rescue received their recently donated Mini Pumper. Rescue 1 has already responded to multiple calls and has been a great asset to the department. Along with being a Mini Pumper it is also equipped with extrication and medical equipment. Rescue 1 is able to handle various types of incidents such as fires, wrecks, medical calls, and other rescue related incidents. With it’s size and design this truck can fit in places a regular fire engine and other types of apparatus can not. Bell City Fire and Rescue would like to thank the Blauvelt New York Volunteer Fire Company for their generous donation!

Here is a look at the severe weather potential for Mother's Day on Sunday. In the graphic on the left, the lighter (yellow-highlighted) area is a Slight Risk of Severe Thunderstorms posted by the Storm Prediction Center in Norman Oklahoma. Surrounding this Slight Risk Area is a darker Marginal Risk area (green-highlighted area) that covers the remainder of the Quad State region, generally along and south of Interstate 64 in southern Illinois and southwest Indiana. Based on the forecast issued Saturday morning, thunderstorms will be ongoing shortly before daybreak on Sunday in southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, and southeast Missouri. As the morning progresses, a few of these storms may produce marginal (less than an inch) hail. During the afternoon, some damaging wind gusts and larger hail (near an inch) may be possible, especially in the Slight Risk area, as well as parts of the Pennyrile region of Kentucky. Any severe threat should diminish around or shortly before sunset. However, even outside any thunderstorm activity, it will be gusty ahead of an approaching cold front, with wind gusts between 35 and 45 mph possible during the day. Stay tuned for the latest forecasts and outlooks issued by the National Weather Service for any changes in coverage, timing, and intensity of thunderstorms on Sunday.

During their bi-weekly training Tuesday evening Bell City Fire and Rescue personnel conducted Water Supply and Pump Operations training. We thought we would bring you all along for a quick peek of our training. Here is a short video from Tuesday evening. Fire personnel train often and for all types of situations. Training is a very important aspect of being a firefighter. Training helps new firefighters learn how and what to do on the fire ground and also helps current firefighters stay up to date and fresh on new tactics and techniques used in the fire service.

04/07/2021

The monthly outdoor siren test that was scheduled for today has been posted until next Wednesday, April 14th at 9:00AM. Inclement weather is expected this afternoon.

In between running emergency calls fire personnel are always conducting tasks around the firehouse and fire district to ensure everything is ready to go for the next call. On top of daily apparatus checks and maintenance this week, fire personnel also flushed and checked fire hydrants to ensure they were working properly and ready to go in the event of an emergency.

There is a slight risk of severe storms this afternoon and evening, as a front approaches. Locally heavy rainfall will also be a hazard, which continues overnight, as the front makes passage. The best chance for localized heavy rains causing flooding issues will be across southern portions of western Kentucky, mainly along or near the Tennessee border.
