Knifley Pipeline Explosion: Approach to blocked KY 76|
2014-02-13 - Knifley, KY - Photo By Alan W. Reed.
Eerie Glow:As I approached the blocked area (about .6 miles west of Crossroads in Knifley) on the Elkhorn Road, there was an eerie glow. . . and this was taken several minutes after the explosion. I've been told by eyewitnesses that the first flames went 300-400 feet into the air. This would be at the foot of the hill. As near as I could estimate ground zero, it would have been south of Perkins Loop and Robinson Ridge. The area affected, I've learned from David Jones, our Adair Director of Pupil Transportation is in the Sam's Lane to Perkins Loop area. While an event of this magnitude is having a huge impact - I've learned that a large number of Knifley area residents have chosen, on their own, to evacuate their homes - David Jones is planning the orderly dispatch of school buses and we'll be operating schools today; if we're learning anything from this event, it is from the professionalism of first responders, who are now doing the job they've trained for, and doing it without panic. - from Alan W. Reed, Adair County School Superintendent
